Thriller Crime | Mystery
Summer in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a blue collar neighborhood
where hipster gourmet supermarkets push against tired
housing projects, and the East River opens into the bay.
Bored and listless, fifteen–year–old June and
Val are looking for some fun. Forget the boys, the bottles,
the coded whistles. Val wants to do something wild and a
little crazy: take a raft out onto the bay.
But out on the water, as the bright light of day gives way
to darkness, the girls disappear. Only Val will survive,
washed ashore semi–conscious in the weeds.
June's shocking disappearance will reverberate in the lives
of a diverse cast of Red Hook residents. Fadi, the Lebanese
bodega owner, trolls for information about the crime. Cree,
just beginning to pull it together after his father's
murder, unwittingly makes himself the chief suspect
although an elusive guardian seems to have other plans for
him. As Val emerges from the shadow of her missing friend,
her teacher Jonathan, Julliard drop–out and barfly,
will be forced to confront a past riddled with tragic sins
