by Jack T. Calk
Directed by Lillian Meredith

When young father Marshall's sister Kasey drops back into his life after years away, he warily agrees to meet her at the rental property in Wisconsin once owned by their late grandfather. And over a weekend of drinking, dancing, nostalgia, and singing novelty fish, it seems this may just be a legitimate attempt at reunion- and there could be hope they can finally get back to what they had. But Kasey will always ask too much of Marshall, and as the ground beneath their reunion begins to crumble, the fate of their family hangs in the balance.
