Storyline

Stressed out law student Zach McAllister takes a five day bicycle trip through the peaceful autumn woods of Western Maryland with his wife, his lover, and his lover's boyfriend. Not exactly the getaway vacation he planned. Along the way, they encounter everything you'd expect on a camping trip - rain, infidelity, and the realization that a truly healthy relationship is just about impossible to find. Written by Jonathan Slade

Timeless except for the hair
2 December 2015 | by sweetsugar-26298See all my reviews

A solid first feature by Jonathan Slade. This film is a story about real people that you can relate too, not a fabricated Hollywood character. Without looking as the wardrobe and hair choices (clearly 90's), the film is timeless because the center of the film is these relationships with each other and living life in a confusing and difficult time in a persons life. The cinematography left something to be desired as the camera is very static and uninteresting, however, this allows the audience to be a part of the film, as another character. There is very much a feeling that you are sitting with the characters by the campfire and bicycle-riding in the forest. Over the course of the film, these characters develop and discover parts of them they never really wanted to see or admit too and that is so relatable.
