It’s a summer’s afternoon and all eight million New Yorkers have invaded the Hamptons for the weekend. Why everyone has come remains a mystery, but what is clear is that the situation is becoming too much for three of them to handle. Since graduation from college, Josie, Browning and Stevenson have made the Hamptons their sanctuary. With this now under attack combined with the mounting fear that Josies husband and children are later than expected create a turbulent atmosphere in which one of them pushes the envelope too far, and the audience is left asking themselves: how far is too far to go to save someone's sanity?
