This is the story of Josh and Rocky, two young teens from entirely different worlds, who collide in the heat of a New York summer. A naive boy from California, Josh comes to New York to visit his Uncle Jake, a sentimental elder whose eccentricities are only exceeded by his warmth and passion for life. Rocky is the beautiful daughter of a rabbi from Brooklyn, whose one dying wish is to understand what it means to be a complete woman before she runs out of time. With seemingly little in common, the two young friends quickly find that they are incomplete without each other and that the span of a brief summer is all time they may ever have. It is with this realization in mind that they are able to embrace hope in the face of a tragedy few relationships could endure.
