The story is described as follows: "In a ranch house deep in Texas Hill Country, a once tight-knit group of friends reunites to bury one of their own. But as they look backward through their lives, it becomes clear they've lost more than just their old pal."

The cast features Rob Campbell (All the Way), Nat DeWolf (Betty's Summer Vacation), Crystal Finn (Pocatello), April Matthis (Iowa), Annie Parisse (Clybourne Park), and Maria Striar (A Map of Virtue).
