by: B.J. Burton

Overview

On the first weekend of summer, Elsie and her friends gather at their cabin in the woods for their annual meeting. As Elsie struggles to repair their dilapidated retreat, the other women become distracted by their own problems. Elsie hammers away trying to fix the place, while her best friend, Diane, drinks wine coolers. One evening during Art Night, when they celebrate their artistic pursuits, the women-only weekend is interrupted by two mysterious men who emerge from the woods. Elsie tries to deal with her unmistakable attraction to one of the men at the same time she is forced to deal with the real reason for the meeting. As old and new wounds resurface, conflicts erupt between the hold of the past and the need to let go. Elsie discovers the fate of the lodge as she rediscovers the value of friendship.
