Storyline

Peter and Andrew haven't seen each other in years. Reunited on the lake where they spent their summers as kids to attend the funeral of a mutual friend, Peter finds that his past is not as concrete and stable as perhaps he needs it to be right now. Searching around the shore of the lake for something to be as it was, Peter is confronted with change at every turn in the last place he expects to find it. The film examines our resistance to change and the idea that sometimes something very small or seemingly insignificant can be the watershed for great change. Written by Duncan M. Rogers

Beautiful and touching film
10 August 2004 | by smlar1224See all my reviews

I saw the premiere of this film in Vermont. For a first film, this is an impressive achievement. It is a touching story of how little, seemingly insignificant, things can trigger strong reactions, and then change your big perspective on your life and the decisions you make. I thought the film was well-acted, and decently scripted. In other words the actors had something to work with. Pay attention to the characters' names; that will help. It is a short film, so you can miss the differences among them. In this age of "reality TV" this is a real story. One of the best aspects of the film is its absolutely fantastic photography. It is breath-takingly gorgeous. If you have been or ever want to go to VT, you should watch this.

The film is short, and worth the 15 mins it will take you to watch it.
