David is so affected by the death of his beautiful wife Gillian, he turns their summer cottage into a permanent home and spends most of his time on the beach there, communicating with his dead wife's spirit and unwittingly neglecting his teenage daughter Rachel.  His teenage daughter and other family members are determined to drag him out of despair and onto the road to recovery.

On the second anniversary of Gillian's death, David invites Gillian's sister Esther her husband Paul to stay for the weekend. Esther insists on bringing a female friend named Kevin Dollof, whom she hopes David will become romantically interested in. David, however, ignores her in proceeding with a ritualistic celebration of Gillian's birthday.

The events of the weekend cause the adults to re-examine their relationships; Esther and Paul have to deal with the problem posed to their marriage by Rachel's provocative young teenage friend, while, most importantly, David comes to realize that he can be a loving and attentive father to Rachel without betraying the memory of Gillian.
