During a hot and hazy summertime in Ontario cottage country, 13-year-old Bea wants a best friend more than anything else, but when she meets Kate she gets more than she had imagined. Bea is newly arrived from Toronto, and painfully lonely. Her parents are fighting over what to do about the family-owned diner. Kate has lived in the area all her life, along with her absent, constantly hungover mother, her troubled older brother, Romeo, and her angry older sister, a single mom herself. Drawn together by curiosity, desire, and their fascination with and fear of the looming world of adolescence, the pair forges a deep bond — despite objections from those around them about how short-lived their friendship will be. Director, Ingrid Veninger, in attendance. Support for Ingrid Veninger's travel provided by Super Channel.
