Olivia leaves a fancy summer in Manhattan and goes to her fam's good-old resort camp. She wants to fix the bungalow for her grandpa and grandma. The old-timers want to spend the last summer together and have some fun with their good friends, and, of course, the lovely family.
Back in the day, this resort used to be gorgeous, but nowadays it's barely holding together. So, Olivia hires Connor, a contractor, to renovate the place. Now, this guy isn't just a random pro - he and the girl go way back, and they used to ignite each other's hearts during the summer holidays. The passion is still there, and it's getting harder and harder to keep the long-buried secrets from the past.
Who knows, maybe by fixing the resort Connor can fix something else - his broken heart? After all, this is a very special place, and it gives people hope.
