It's summer 1974 on an island off the coast of Connecticut, and all Jack Smith wants is a vacation like he enjoyed in his youth: swimming, sailing, and no worries. But Jack finds his summer plans quickly spiraling out of control. His estranged wife follows him to the island, looking for money. The priest and constable are conspiring his ruin.
