Film description

Far away from the bustle of the city, life does is not necessarily any less complicated, as Jack finds out in some uncomfortable ways. Having trouble coping with his brother’s death, Jack accepts his friend Iris’ offer to stay alone at a small house she own, on an island. But, unexpectedly, Jack finds he has company in the person of Iris’ sister, Hannah. She, in turn, has come here seeking solace after ending a long relationship. They both end up drowning their pain in alcohol and their solitude in each other’s arms. But, as in director Lynn Shelton’s other work, it takes three to tango – and Iris arrives at the house too. Some fireworks will fly, but the trio begin to work out for themselves and each other what happiness is all about.
