When a young widow's reclusive life in a charming beach town is interrupted by a surprise visitor, she is forced to reckon with dark secrets about her family, her late husband, and the past she tried to leave behind.

Lauren Adelman and Rory Kincaid marry just out of college as Rory earns a spot in the NHL. Then he shocks everyone-- even Lauren-- by enlisting in the U.S. Army. When Rory dies in combat, Lauren is left devastated, alone, and under unbearable public scrutiny. She retreats to her family's old beach house on the Jersey Shore, sharing the house with her overbearing mother and competitive sister. Filmmaker Matt Brio, making a documentary about Rory tracks her down and persuades her to give him just an hour of her time. Over a summer of revelations, surprises, and upheaval, Lauren begins to understand the past-- and to welcome the future.
