Almost, Maine

Written by John Cariani & Directed by Will McGuire

One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.
