In its heyday, Lake Ronkonkoma was a popular tourist spot with slides and boat rides. But by the ’90s, most people deemed it a washed-up, litter-ridden mess. Except for Kevin. And Nora. They saw something more. They saw something special.
One summer morning, the timid teens see their lives collide in fateful fashion along the shore of Long Island’s largest lake. At first, silence abounds. But within hours, the metaphorical-minded twosome turns a dreary day into one of great realization. Through the cascading tide, they explore life, love and their truly meaningless existence.
Bit by bit, the day disappears. And the young couple returns to their stale suburb. But throughout life’s ebb and flow of moments, they’ll always have that day on the lake.
