Reunited in a British seaside town, three generations of women look to make personal changes outside the boundaries of their home, as they hire a mysterious stranger named Nick to renovate their house. Marielle, the youngest, finds her loyalties tested by his surprising charm, and dives into an affair which quickly spins out of control. Nadine, the matriarch of the family, feels inspired to rekindle the acting dreams of her youth. And Marielle's older sister, Adrienne, uses Nick as a distraction during her break-up with her husband Hugo.
As the summer heats up, Nick plays dangerous games with Marielle, exerting a brute power that
seems to mesmerise her. While he responds to the women's need for self-actualisation and inner desires, he exposes a violent and self-destructive behavior that hurts Marielle and her family. It's up to Marielle to confront his deception and mend the family bonds, by fixing the foundations that Nick has broken.
The film is touring the festival circuit in 2020.
