Two couples, one long weekend in the Hamptons.

David (Michael Knowles) and Julie (Kathleen Wise) have been happily married for 6 years, but over the years their passion for one another has faded.  While running some errands in town one afternoon, Julie runs into Marc (Jilon VanOver), an old friend of theirs who happens to be in the Hamptons raising money for his next film project.  In an effort to stir things up with David, Julie invites Marc and his very new, free-spirited girlfriend Catherine (Monique Zordan) to spend the weekend with them.  Marc & Catherine's fresh and exciting relationship stirs sexual feelings in David & Julie, but not just for each other.  Marc and David’s ambiguous sexual past soon bubbles to the surface and before long, everyone is feeling things they didn’t expect.  Catherine and Julie find themselves falling in love as David and Marc try to figure out who they are and what they mean to each other.  All four people will never be the same by the end of the weekend.

Michael Knowles is an award-winning and critically acclaimed filmmaker who wears many hats with ease -- acting, writing, directing, editing, producing, and cinematography. As an actor, he has appeared on the award-winning HBO series "Sex and The City" as Marathon Man and on an award-winning episode of "Law & Order: SVU" as Artie Felton. Independent feature film credits include: "Point & Shoot", "Walking On The Sky", "Room 314" and "The Babysitters". Michael owns and operates his own production company, 7A Productions, with his wife Kathy Huynh-Knowles.

As a writer, Michael has had four of his feature-film scripts produced.  He has directed Oscar and Emmy award-winning actors and some of the best yet-to-be-discovered talents around.

Kathleen Wise's film credits include "Bella Vista", "Viscera", "Isn't it Delicious" and "Palimpsest", which was a selected short at the Sundance Film Festival 2013. She has extensive theater credits, some of which include: "Julius Caesar" (The  Acting Company/Guthrie Theater), "The Diary of Anne Frank" (Pioneer Theater), and "Murder on the Nile" (Dorset Theater Festival). Kathleen has a BFA from Sarah Lawrence and an MFA from NYU.  She also sings and plays the cello. Currently residing in New York, Kathleen is in rehearsal for 5 Pointz Collective's sci-fi/horror project "Joint-Stock", based on the Alien Trilogy, and was also cast in the upcoming feature "SPLIT" directed by Deborah Kampmeier.

Jilon VanOver is a Southern California native who has spent much of his life explaining to people how to pronounce his name... (Ji-lone) Over the past 10 years, Jilon has appeared in several TV shows and over 20 feature films. His most recent characters have included the eager, love-hungry bounty hunter Ransom Bray in The History Channel’s award-winning mini-series "Hatfields and McCoys”; super-agent Ray Harris in “Strawberry Summer”; the elusive movie star Bobby Savage in the digital series “Chasing the Hill”; and Amish farmer Lucas Holst in the Lifetime movie "An Amish Murder" opposite Neve Campbell and directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal. Jilon is a fearless, passionate, dynamic, and devoted actor, and we expect to see much more of his work in the future.

Monique Zordan is an American actress of Italian heritage who grew up in New York studying theatre and dance. Kicking off her career, she took home the title of Miss New York Model 2001, which led her to an array of modeling assignments and appearances in music videos.  From there, she began to pursue her true passion of acting by enrolling in The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute.  With numerous plays under her belt, Monique was determined to conquer the Silver Screen and headed West. Monique can be seen in the award-winning short film "Jack in the Box" as well as the feature films "GreyStone Park" and "The Great Chameleon". Currently living in Los Angeles, she divides her time between the two cities to maximize her work potential and furthering her training with the crème de la crème of acting coaches and institutions.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Of course there is always risks and challenges with anything you do but we feel that we are over the biggest hump because the project has already been filmed and it is coming along great so far. Our biggest challenge and obstacle at this point is money for post-production, and we know that with great post-production, this film will be launched to a higher level of quality.
