Taylor Colby returns to his Nova Scotia coastal village home to live with his boat-builder father after his childhood sweetheart Laura's drug-related death. His mother, who deserted them decades earlier, attempts to reconcile with her husband and son. As Taylor grapples with family dysfunction, he becomes involved with Jillian, a feminist professor from Philadelphia, and her troubled twelve-year-old son, who are also on the run from a past they can't seem to escape.
