It is a beautiful summer evening on a moonlit beach by the ocean. It’s July 20th in the years: 1969, 1994, and 2019. Three sets of actors play Linda and Tommy during different phases of their lives; each twenty-five years apart. In 1969, on the night of the first moonwalk, Tommy and Linda, age fifteen, consummate their solemn vow of love for the first time as one small step is taken for man and one large step is taken or mankind. In 1994, Tom, now forty, physically abuses his wife, Linda, for the very last time. And in 2019, at sixty-five, Thomas returns home to Linda, and to bury their only son. The action in the three eras unfolds simultaneously as we watch the conception, dissolution, and absolution of the lifelong vow of two lovers.
