"ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL...a smart, funny, quietly effective and authentic slice of older millennial life..." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
Three couples from Chicago vacation for a weekend at a lakeside cabin in Michigan. Isabelle, played by Roxane Mesquida (Now Apocalypse, Fat Girl, Malgré la nuit) and Richard (Kevin Wehby) have been together for five years and are deeply unhappy; Golda (Alana Arenas) and Jack (Jack C. Newell), whose father owns the cabin, have been happily married for 10 years and are trying to conceive a child; and Peggy (Najarra Townsend, star of Contracted) and Wyatt (Shane Simmons) are a newly formed couple whose future together is uncertain. Over the course of three days in this character-driven relationship drama, hidden tensions and secrets slowly come to the surface.
