Not on Fifth Street cover

NOT ON FIFTH STREET (2017): It's 1937, and a storm is brewing over the town of Ironton, Ohio. Teens Pete and Gus Brinkmeyer struggle with growing differences in their relationship. When rain begins to fall, the Ohio River rises, and so does the tension between the brothers. No one anticipates the rain will last nearly two weeks and the river will reach record levels. With a flooded river between them, both boys need to dig deep within themselves to ensure survival for themselves and those they care about. They must also face trying to restore their relationship. (Ages 12+)
