The Summer We Were Friends
Summer has arrived in Derrybeggs and the biggest event of the year, the annual film festival, is less than a month away. But as plans begin to unravel, tensions mount in the sleepy seaside town.
Newcomer Dot joined the festival committee as a way of fitting in and as the first guests arrive to her newly renovated
beachside B&B – TV star Molly Cusack and businessman Ryan Schindler – Dot becomes more determined than ever
that her move be the fresh start she so desperately needs.
Meanwhile heartbroken Merry has returned home to Derrybeggs and is back working at her parents’ café. Everyone in town knows that her dream life in Florida tragically fell apart, but Merry is the only one who knows the whole story…
When an intriguing American visitor turns up at The Seashell Café with no memory of who he is or why he is in Derrybeggs, Dot, Merry and the rest of the town’s residents must come together to try to help him. But will they manage to do this while also saving the film festival?
