It’s the summer of 1969 in a Catskill Mountains bungalow colony. While her husband spends each week working in the city, Pearl Kantrowitz finds herself drawn toward a free-spirited traveling salesman. Her personal crisis plays out against one of America’s most tumultuous summers, as astronauts walk on the moon, the Vietnam War escalates, and Woodstock takes place right down the road. Michael Greif, the award-winning director of Rent, Grey Gardens and Next To Normal, returns to Powerhouse with this deeply romantic story of awakening, adapted from Pamela Gray's hit film.
