Logline

A world premiere: There’s enough trouble to go around as this sabbatical becomes a baptism of fire for the whole family.

Tara and Robert are excited to be taking a year off and traveling to Greece with their daughter. Fun in the sun, more time to themselves, less work: the couple had envisioned a wonderful stay. But the reality turns out to be rather unpleasant. Somehow things don’t work out as planned. And then Robert’s wayward brother shows up.
