A poignant, lightly comedic story about a recent college grad who volunteers to care for her formidable great aunt. While at her rural estate, she unearths her family's past and takes a meaningful step toward her own future.
Instead of chasing boys on the beach with her friends, recent college grad Dora finds herself caring for her reclusive Great Aunt in snowy upstate New York. When the imaginative girl discovers her aunt's hidden romantic past, Dora dreams that their revelation will pull Aunt Vera and herself from their mutual depressions.
The production weathered two of the largest East coast blizzards in the past twenty-five years, breaking records in upstate New York. See more »
After I hung up, I kicked the pantry door in.
Aw! I wondered what happened to that door.

Themes that everyone can relate to!
I recently saw this film and the characters all resemble someone I know. To be on the cusp of being a child and a woman and all that that entails. I know what it's like to be in that time in your life and feel like the world is rotating around you and you're just standing there. It's hard to become a productive adult and hold on to that child like abandon. This film shows the main character becoming a woman and getting over her fears. It was cast very well. Every actor seemed to fit seamlessly into this world. The characters were thoughtfully fleshed out and purposeful. They also all showed me that no matter what age, people are still dreamers and still struggle with following their heads vs. their hearts. The writing and directing expressed that very well. I liked the music (I'm a HUGE music lover) and the photography was gorgeous! Great watch!
