Estranged for decades after a turbulent 1969 summer spent with a free-spirited redhead, two brothers are forced by a shocking reminder to confront the past events that divided them.
1969. Eugene and his brother, Bill meet Ligeia, a sexy, free-spirited redhead from Daytona Beach banished to their small North Carolina town until the fall. Ligeia's raw sensuality and rebellious attitude draw Eugene to the thrills and pleasures of the counterculture movement. As the romance turns dark Eugene and Bill drift apart, and when Ligeia vanishes their rift has become immutable. Decades later Bill is a successful surgeon while Eugene is a failed writer and determined alcoholic. When the past unexpectedly surfaces, Eugene is plunged back into that fateful summer, and the girl he cannot forget.
