It's the dead of winter, and the summer vacation getaway of Long Beach Island, New Jersey is desolate and blanketed in snow. Charlie is 35, heartbroken, and just wants some time away from the rest of the world. The island ghost-town seems to be the perfect escape until his solitude is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. A hired beauty, the townie fireman, and an eccentric British real-estate agent desperately trying to stay in the country suddenly find themselves tangled together in a beach house where the mood is anything but sunny. From the award-winning writer of Garden State.
