In this dialogue-driven dramedy, Hartley tries to survive a summer of romance, rehabilitation and revelations in small-town 1990's Colorado.
You can never fulfill your fantasies – that’s why they’re your fantasies.
At least that’s been Hartley Pool’s experience of life and love, but perhaps The American Way is about to change things.
Marooned in Estes Park as a male maid in a horrifically misjudged attempt to recover his sanity, Hartley lurches from a failed obsession with the best conversation he ever had to a series of forehead-slapping near misses with the woman who could change his life forever. Serendipity smiles, but their brief, beautiful time together looks like becoming just another opportunity he let slip through the cracks in his brain as he crashes headlong towards his destiny and can only hope that it’s still there.
