“In the mood for the ultimate vacation? Warm sun, beautiful landscapes, carefree days and balmy nights? In The Myth of Summer, a touching comedy people look for love and fulfillment in the promise of summer, only to find that the journey is the turbulent. But paradise is closer than they think.” (From the CPO Website)
