Britty’s twenty-four year old daughter just had another ‘bout’ last week, this time she tossed her boyfriend’s air conditioning unit out the window and onto the hood of his car three stories down… while he was sitting in it. With her daughter tucked away for a few months in a behavioral health hospital, Britty decides to rent a house on the island and spend some well earned time with her sister, and away from her daughter. She soon finds herself charmed by the sexy retired doctor next door. Doc Gentry’s quirky ways make her laugh, which is something she hasn’t done in quite some time.
However, when his unusual behavior shocks her, she quickly discovers that Gentry’s friends think he has a sinister secret that he’s harboring . He’s sold his family home downtown and retired from his practice and now does basically nothing.
Britty’s sister urges her to get to know him, and in that effort she accepts his invitation to a private party. Arriving late, she walks into an affair that is way out of hand, and all hopes of getting to know him seem to vanish into thin air.
But Doc Gentry’s persistence finally wins her over, and he offers a quiet dinner to make up for the party debacle. There Britty stumbles across his secret, but it’s way too close to home for her. It’s only after a night of soul searching that she decides to let go of her own problems and take on his. Can she save him?
