DSCN0197Three years after high school graduation and after quitting college, childhood friends Marcelo and Barry find themselves waiting on tables at the popular Vineyard Restaurant in St. Petersburg, FL.

One evening Barry is captivated by Emily, a new waitress on vacation from her studies at Miami State, but her eyes are set on Marcelo. Soon, their lives intertwine in the summer of 1978—a season that would bear gifts for heroism, the bliss of romantic love, and the despair and agony of insanity…
