Synopsis

Storyline:
A former high school football star and one time college athlete, Jon has landed back in the place of his youth — Fairhaven — a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast. Now in his early thirties, and with the promise of younger days seemingly washed ashore, Jon’s vague feelings of dissatisfaction are crystallized by a television interview with his football hero Tom Brady, who proclaims that, even after three super bowl wins, “There’s got to be something more than this.” Jon recounts his epiphany to Sam, old friend and schoolmate who married early, fathered early, divorced early and never left town.

User Reviews: I have to admit that I’m not often pulled in to character-driven movies. I’m afraid I might be a victim of the fast-paced, constant-stimulation environment that technology has created for us. But this movie got to me. I’m from New England and the vibe and the characters were so accurate, and the story was so engrossing that I felt like I was a part of the movie. The other reviewer put it well when she wrote, "it wasn’t like I was watching a movie, it was like I was watching life."

I felt like I knew the characters, and I was left with the feeling of wanting another "episode." I actually think the movie would make a great premise for a dramatic television show, and I would definitely be a weekly viewer. I’m looking forward to nationwide release of the movie so that I can share it with my friends.
