|Director||:||James Andrew Walsh|
Jimmy and Carolyn are the original rebel without a cause born and raised in rural Charlestown, Rhode Island and the Italian-American big city beauty queen from Providence who married as high school sweethearts in 1959. On a whim, to celebrate Jimmy’s 75th birthday on Labor Day, Jimmy and Carolyn decide to drive up from Florida to Westerly, RI to surprise their son, James, and his partner, William, a landscaper from Costa Rica. The bigger surprise that awaits them is the emotional crisis threatening to destroy James and William’s twenty-year relationship. Returning home to New England triggers painful memories and crushing regrets for Jimmy and Carolyn, revealing darker truths between the Pinot Grigio and the pepperoni loaf, as all four struggle with the past and the now-or-never choices they face if they are to remain a family.
