When Joe Scott (Daniel Craig) a dwindling Hollywood star, lost in a haze of debauchery and drinking, receives news of the sudden death of his childhood friend back home in England, He goes back to pay his respect.

Once there surrounded by his childhood memories, he is soon haunted with flash backs of his young self, in particular the memory of a specific summer in his seaside village, a summer where his life changed forever. What follows is a nostalgic trip into memory lane, filled with longing and what ifs.

With a strong supporting cast, (Olivia Williams) and (Eve), Daniel Craig is devastating as Joe Scott, in this mature Drama with very serious questions about Life, memories and promises.
