Experiencing Interruptions?


BREAK is a romantic look at life, love, and sweet summertime through the lens of two high-school kids on the brink of adulthood. AG, a pragmatic introvert, is forced to leave the big city and return to his old hometown in the rural midwest. Sparks fly when he reunites with his idealistic childhood pal MARLI. They spend their vacation at the local roller rink, getting buzzed and getting into trouble as the dog days of summer melt away. But what happens when summer ends?
