At its heart, the film is about main character Tom returning to where he grew up—Westhampton. The protagonist, a filmmaker, finds himself in the unenviable position of having to clean out memories from his childhood home after the house has been sold. But Tom, who left after a tragedy permanently altered his and his friends’ lives, hasn’t been back in a decade and finds that sometimes old wounds stay open and forgiveness can’t always be asked for.
Nilsson began writing the script after he had moved to Los Angeles and came back to Westhampton to visit. Though he’d spent nearly everyday wandering Main Street as a teenager, Nilsson said when he returned, the town suddenly felt unfamiliar.

"Huffington Post’s Christian Nilsson set out to find the answer and released a video this week in which he tries to track down the true oldest bar among the city’s 1,700. [...] The video is well worth watching just to see how hotly contested the issue is among bar owners and how far back Nilsson dives into the city’s historical records to look for the answer. "
