When a love story from the 1950's becomes the standard for a grandson to live up to, it can either shape his future or leave him chasing a fairy tale.
Vincent (Nicholas Stoesser) is a charismatic young man who met the love of his life (Jamie Leo) in a storybook "love at first sight" encounter. His grandson John (Michael Bonini) has recently broken up with his high school sweetheart, a truth he is hiding from a now elderly Vincent (Bob Adrian) out of fear of his disappointment. The two stories play out simultaneously to create one narrative about love, loss, and finding the path you belong on.

Inspired by a true fairytale
"When my grandfather told me the story of how he met my grandmother, I promised him I'd put that story on film one day.
This is a love letter to my family, my home and most importantly, my history. It is two glimpses, a generation apart, that honors the past while charting a course for the future."
