“A gripping tale of love, lust, and the power of friendship that charts the unconventional and passionate affairs embarked on by two lifelong friends, Lil and Roz, who fall in love with each other’s sons. Afraid of facing the ire and judgment of their insular seaside community, the two affairs continue over the years in secret, until their discovery threatens to tear apart the two lives and families of the young men, who must eventually choose between a well-worn path, or following their true desires” (gaumont.net).
