In THAT WAS THEN
THIS IS NOW, Emilio Estevez stars as Mark Jennings, a delinquent teenager who becomes overly jealous when his brother-like figure and best friend, Byron (Sheffer), gets a girlfriend (Delaney) and tries to abandon his old, bad boy ways. Already feeling alienated after being orphaned when his father killed his mother during a violently heated argument, Mark becomes jealous of Brians new relationship and gets himself involved with drugs as a result. When Mark and Brians mentor, Charlie Woods (Freeman), is killed, and when Byrons girlfriends little brother is reported missing with Mark seeming to have more clues to his whereabouts than anyone else, their world changes even more as the boys friendship is put to the ultimate test.
