Sara and Lily grew up at Smith Mountain Lake. Sara became estranged from the family and without explanation moved to Los Angeles to study law. Her sister Lily, an artist, teaches locally and lives with their parents, Ray and Vivian, until Dad dies in an accident. Sara returns to help settle his estate, and all our ladies cross paths with an eclectic group of local oddballs, as they search for a Loch Ness-style monster they believe lurks in the lake's depths. A few real Smith Mountain Lake characters make appearances. The next week at the lake is filled with adventure, tears, and laughter as Vivian and her two daughters finally understand, through the guidance of Dad's spirit, if they still belong on the lake, even though Ray is gone. All paths converge at the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival, on course for a heart-warming and hilarious collision.

Know anything about a sea monster lives out in the lake? You ever hear anything about that?
Been a rumor 'bout a 600-pound catfish out by the dam.
Well, that's a lot of Long John Silver's isn't it?
There are two scenes during the first part of the end credits. The first one has the TV show guy asking women about the lake monster, and the second has the girl getting asked for directions as she is stopped on the side of the road. See more
