A Summer Gothic

SUNNY DAYS
Feature / Period Drama, Coming of Age

During the summer of 1972, two step-siblings—Rosemary (sixteen) and Dick (nineteen)—inhabit their affluent uncle's isolated beach home while he's away, encountering and harboring an enigmatic drifter named Daisy, with whom they form a strange, perhaps troubling bond. Together they will experience moments of youthful freedom in a bygone era, poignant self-discovery, and ultimately a horrific and unforgettable event.

Concept: The Virgin Suicides drops acid with Badlands.
