Teenager Adam is spending his summer vacation with his parents on rugged Lake Superior. His dull routine shatters when he befriends Riley and Nate, smart aleck cousins who pass their ample free time with debauchery and reckless cliff jumping. The revelation of a hurtful secret triggers Adam to set in motion irreversible events that test the bonds of friendship and change the boys forever.

"During my childhood, my parents took me up to northern Ontario to spend the summer in a tiny beach community. Though the story of the film is fictional, this community serves as the setting for it. I wanted to capture the inferno of this stage of youth for boys, before the transition to adulthood. I wanted to capture the sting of unrequited love, the joy of true friendship, the excitement of pushing boundaries with reckless abandon."
