Synopsis

Summer's almost over and Alex is no longer welcome.

Alex is a young woman teetering on the edge. Behind on her rent and with nothing to keep her in New York she agrees to spend August by the beach, in the lavish house of the older man she’s been seeing.

After one misstep at a dinner party she’s dismissed with a ride to the station and a ticket back to the city.

Just how long can she keep going before she’s found out?
