Matt Fowler is a doctor practicing in his native Maine and is married to New York born Ruth, a choral music teacher. Their only child, Frank is home from school for the summer, working part time as a lobsterman to earn money for graduate school in the fall. He's also involved in a love affair with a local single mother, which throws his parents for a loop. As the beauty of Maine's brief and fleeting summer comes to an end, these characters find themselves in the midst of unimaginable tragedy.
