After a period of ten years the Melville brothers, Lee and Owen, return to their uncle’s lakeside cabin to get away and fish. Their weekend plans for relaxation and reflection are spoiled by the unexpected arrival of two neighbors and sisters Mary and Loretta.The sisters become the catalyst for a tenderly funny and unsentimental look at four lives in transition. As a result, it turns out to be an unforgettable weekend and all four learn much about themselves. The situation of the Melville brothers is both humane yet humorous resounding the upbeat, down trodden and mind boggling aspects of love.
