As summer ends, Sam's world unexpectedly shatters twice: Suzie's parents are moving to a new city to save their marriage, and his own mother has suddenly left the house. Over the years Suzie thinks of Sam and her closest friend Bella, but makes no attempt to reconnect. Years later, a chance meeting with Sam's older brother will reunite her with both Sam and Bella-- and force her to confront her past and her friends."@en ;
