About The Movie:
Moriah (Lefevre) is a talented woodworking artisan who carefully crafts creations for her clients in the beautiful, French island town where her family has lived for generations. She dreams of one day being able to purchase the lighthouse keeper’s residence that had been home for years before being decommissioned and plans to use her skills to lovingly restore it to its full beauty. Ben (Macfarlane), an American architect who checks in to her aunt’s hotel for the summer, may be the fly in the ointment – Moriah is shocked and saddened to learn Ben has been hired to design a new home for the new owner. But the purchaser has an unexpected connection to the island as well as Moriah’s aunt, which may lead to more surprises for Moriah as the summer unfolds.
