An intense and raw yet ultimately affecting love story about the conflicts and contradictions of a struggling young relationship. It is a two-character drama in three swiftly moving acts, and it centers on Ruth and Nick, a 20-something couple attempting a romantic weekend at a lakeside cabin owned by Nick’s family. Ruth, inquisitive and openhearted, tries to strike up conversations about beavers, Vikings, her grandmother – anything, really – in the hopes of drawing out the physically amorous yet emotionally inaccessible Nick. He, however, remains difficult to coax, though the memories he does choose to share hint at a dark and painful past.
