About this project
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.

Risks and challenges
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
