Jake remembers when he was still an innocent kid, just waiting for something exciting to happen in the summer between elementary school and junior high school. The excitement was Malia, who just moved in to the house across the street.
This is Jake’s story. He and his closest friends, Charlie, Beth, and Emma, have been together from the beginning as toddlers, until Malia joined their group that summer. Their summer began with the metamorphosis of their playhouse into The Fort. This special place holds their deepest and darkest secrets, from childhood to adulthood. Growing and experiencing countless adventures through junior high and high school, they returned to The Fort on graduation night to say good-bye to each other, to The Fort, and to their childhood.
Returning to their high school reunion after going to college, working, and loving others, they have become different. Altered by life and adulthood, they have experienced life, death, and everything in between. And what if the one person who Jake thought he could always count on has changed and is keeping a devastating secret? Would that secret tear them apart?
