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 to talk about her husband.
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.
