A self-absorbed college student finds himself reluctantly forced to grow up when he returns home to bid farewell to his grandfather in this soul-stirring drama starring Robert Loggia and Arye Gross. Josh Winters (Jack Carpenter) is too wrapped up in college life to think about anything but partying with his friends. It's his last summer before graduation, and he's eager to spend it at the beach house, savoring every sun-soaked minute. When Josh learns that his grandfather (Loggia) is dying, the gravity of the situation fails to register. But as the relatives gather around to say their goodbyes, old wounds are reopened and Josh assumes the role of peacekeeper, holding his family together through one of the most difficult periods they've ever endured. Though the last thing that Josh wanted was to spend the summer with his dying grandfather, he soon discovers that the experience has taught him more about growing up than four years at college ever could.
