| Lots of quiet and a few explosions
Taryn (Deragh Campbell) is a runaway from Northern Ireland. She arrives at the Ocean City bus stop in Maryland with little warning. She doesn't know that her aunt Kim (Kim Taylor) and uncle Bill (Ned Oldham) are splitting up. Her cousin Abby (Hannah Gross) is home from her first year of college and is suffering from the breakup. Taryn and Abby tries to find some solace in their dysfunctional family lives.

It's a lot of quiet long uncut scenes without dialog. There are some musical interludes. Some of the characters are musicians and music seems to be important for this movie. Snappy compelling dialog is not as important. That's really what's missing from this indie. Filmmakers Amy Belk and Matthew Porterfield filled this with some family dysfunction but doesn't take full advantage. The problems are never really discussed. It explodes more than anything. There are a few explosions but not much else. This needs to allow the characters talk about stuff and do stuff.
