When a young widow's reclusive life in a charming beach
town is interrupted by a surprise visitor, she is forced
to reckon with dark secrets about her family, her late
husband, and the past she tried to leave behind.
Lauren Adelman and her high school sweetheart, Rory
Kincaid, are a golden couple. They marry just out of
college as Rory, a star hockey player, earns a spot in the
NHL. Their future could not look brighter when Rory shocks
everyone-Lauren most of all-by enlisting in the U.S. Army.
When Rory dies in combat, Lauren is left devastated,
alone, and under unbearable public scrutiny.
Seeking peace and solitude, Lauren retreats to her
family's old beach house on the Jersey Shore. But this
summer she's forced to share the house with her
overbearing mother and competitive sister. Worse, a
stranger making a documentary about Rory tracks her down
and persuades her to give him just an hour of her time.
One hour with filmmaker Matt Brio turns into a summer of
revelations, surprises, and upheaval. As the days grow
shorter and her grief changes shape, Lauren begins to
understand the past-and to welcome the future.
