Long before the 1990 blockbuster 'Ghost' came along there was 'Sandcastles'.
A ghostly romance between a lonely young girl and the handsome victim of an auto accident who had died in her arms but later is discovered wandering on the beach.
Romance and fantasy mix on an exotic beach where the down on her luck musician meets and falls in love with this mysterious stranger that returns to Earth to make amends for the wrongs ha had done while alive.
There seems to be something magical or even mystical about this story. As the young man's ghost, who appears to pop into the scene from nowhere, attends to unfinished business. In so doing, he manages to save his reputation, falls in love and having given his all to complete his unfinished tasks has to leave his love behind.
The castles in the sand are beautiful, but they are easily destroyed by the ocean's tide. The message, some good can come out of even life's seemingly darkest moments. Certainly, one has to note the undaunted faith and hope of the old man, even when it appears that all is about to be lost.
A 70's, made for TV movie that struck a chord with audiences. A very beautiful story of love, inspiration and hope for all to enjoy.
