Six childhood friends who have been raised alongside one another in a Long Island blue-collar neighborhood return to the familiarity of their hometown for one last summer to hammer out their tangled relationships and spend some time together before embarking on their respective big-city career pursuits. Jimmy and his former flame Jill cannot decide whether or not they want to be with each other, despite a deep attraction. Jimmy’s father wants him to focus on his career and go to Alaska on a six-month-long photography gig with National Geographic. Jill is trying to make it as a budding fashion designer and finds work as a designer’s assistant in Manhattan.

Mikey struggles with accountancy because his interests lie elsewhere. Pags has a crush on Tammy, but she secretly likes Mikey. Will these lifelong friends be able to figure out what they want to do with their lives and where they stand with each other? Guess you’ll have to watch to find out!
