George Cooper, a 35-year-old Bostonian in a thankless job, is at the end of his rope. Desperate for change, he needs a way to gain the perspective and courage needed to do so.
After a crushing Thanksgiving encounter with his abusive, semi-ex girlfriend, he ventures to the local island of Nantucket in search of that much-needed perspective. Little does he know that this magical, timeless island will challenge, then shatter, every perception he's ever had about life -- both his own and in general -- as his three-day weekend becomes an adventure spanning centuries.
He left Boston a loser, but will come home a hero.
