Successful 32-year-old New York artist Adam returns to his North Carolina home to confront first-love Jane and relive their eighteenth summer, when Adam and Cary were still best friends and Jane was Cary's girl. By the end of that summer, Jane and Adam had fallen in love, causing guilt that was only fueled by Cary's suicide three years later. In examining their feelings for Cary and for each other now, both finally grow up, arriving at a mature love that keeps them in the dance of life that Cary left early
