CGiii Comment

After a nervous breakdown and suicide attempt, Lex (Pano Tsaklas) has moved into the family's vacation home in Northern California to recuperate. His best friend Kenny (Jose Fernando) has come to stay with Lex for the summer for emotional support but also to have some time away from his controlling husband. Lex's brash older brother David (Robert Sean Campbell) then arrives with his new fiance Laura (Casey Semple) to stay for a few days. There is also a guest house on the property that is being rented for the summer by Shane (Jacob Betts), a struggling screenwriter trying to make the leap to Hollywood. Lex is friendly with his neighbor Harry (Mark Schwab), a recently retired IT executive whose husband died three years ago. Over this past summer, Harry has fallen in love with Lex, Lex has fallen in love with Shane and Shane has fallen in love with Kenny. David, once a promising young actor now in a career slump, sees a chance to get back in the spotlight by exploiting a tragic crime from his and Lex's past; many years earlier, a teenage Lex shot and killed their abusive stepfather with the resulting trial becoming a media sensation. As David tries to solicit Shane into writing the screenplay, Lex's mental state spirals down leading to a shattering conclusion.
