Olivia and her brother Henry return to the deteriorating family cabin they have just inherited. There they wrestle with Grandpa’s old stories, an opportunistic real estate developer, a monster muskie, and each other. This place, familiar but not ordinary, is infused with memories. The results of the reunion are both fantastic and disastrous.
