Grad-school-dropout Leigh spends seemingly endless days caring for her ill mother in her childhood home. A chance encounter with her ex, Cam, leads Leigh to make a last-minute decision to invite him on her solo camping trip. Falling into old patterns of familiarity is easy for the duo; what’s hard is facing deep-seated wounds between them that never healed. Between losing Cam's dog, tripping on mushrooms, drunken nights by the bonfire baring their souls, making up dumb songs, and jealous arguments, the "vacation" becomes a constant guessing game of whether or not the two will find themselves back together, or never speaking again. -JR
