SUMMARY:
Comedy/Drama


Nat Paradis is a Red Sox-loving dad who manages Paradis’ Last Convenient Store, the last place to get gas before the Canadian border. When an old flame returns to town, Nat gets a chance to rekindle a romance he gave up on years ago. But sparks fly as he’s forced to choose between new love and old. A hilarious and heartbreakingly hard look at love lost and found, and at what it means to “get back to happy."
