“Justin (Jordan Gavaris), a recently divorced gay man, brings Billie (Madison Shamoun), the biracial daughter he gave up for adoption, to the lake where he summered as a boy. Justin hopes spending the summer together with Billie will bring them closer. Still, Justin’s obsession with wresting control of his family cottage back from his stepsister Maisy-May (Julia Stiles) only pushes them further apart. It will take a lot of growing up for all parties to learn how they fit into a family, including the Iron Lady of the lake, Maisy.”

In an attempt to bond with Billie, the daughter he gave up for adoption, Justin Lovejoy brings her to his family cottage by a lake. 

His plans to strengthen their relationship over the summer are thwarted when he finds out that his wicked step-sister, Maisy May has wrongfully inherited the house. 

Billie and Justin discover Maisy’s plans to tear down the whole thing and work together to stop her.

The three work on bridging the gaps in their relationships through charades, discussing the past, and even a trial by combat using oars.
