Charles, the responsible one, stayed home to manage the family restaurant when his parents retired to Las Vegas.

With her lackadaisical attitude and penchant for spontaneity, Annie apparently coasts through life One summer weekend will force them to face the things that they dislike about each other, and ultimately dislike about themselves. Throughout the weekend, Charles will contend with his place in this small town, his fear of leaving it, and the girl that got away because of his responsible nature. Annie will confront the very reasons she left this small town, her fear of coming back to it, and the men upon whom she has relied to avoid responsibility for her own life. As both Charles and Annie ... Written by Joey Coldize
