"Five Mile Lake contains all that passion, betrayal, violence and heartbreak in the pauses between words...has a gift for quotidian dialogue with a deep well of subtext. It doesn’t really sound like dialogue. It sounds like the way people talk." - Los Angeles Times

Stuck in a town near Scranton, PA are Jamie and Mary. Mary is working at a bakery while taking care of her veteran brother and Jamie is taking care of his ill mother. When Jamie's brother, Rufus, comes to visit from New York with his girlfriend, Peta, to hopefully bolster their waning relationship, desires of lives passing by are brought to the surface. Five Mile Lake is a tender, realistic portrayal of relationships between those who leave to the city, those who stay home, and those who feel trapped in their surroundings.
