FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Anne Borin PR
Inspired by the first girl he ever loved, Eric Chaney's magnetic debut film introduces us to Mark and Christina, a girl as mysterious as she is candid, as aloof as she is available. In one pastoral hometown summer, they spiral around one another in a universe of coincident deaths and disappearances, falling slowly into and away from love.
