This is the story of a family raised on the lake. Sara (Scottie Thompson), estranged from her father, moved away to Los Angeles without explanation, to become a lawyer, her younger sister Lily (Madeline Zima), an artist, teaches art at a local school and lives with their parents and dog, Dobie. When Dad (Jeff Fahey) dies in a sudden fish-cooking accident, Sara returns home to SML to confront his memory and settle his estate. The next few weeks at the lake are filled with discoveries, tears, conflict, new love interests and laughter as the two daughters finally understand, through the guidance of Dad's spirit, why it was so important to Dad that they grow up on the lake. For Mom (Jane Seymour), it is a journey of overcoming her personal tragedy and feelings of abandonment to be able to help her daughter.A local oddball, Carl Berger (Ben Savage) leading an eclectic group of guys, (including Richard Moll and Sean Patrick Flanery), cross paths with the ladies as they search for a Loch Ness style monster they believe lurks in the lake's depths; and a few real Smith Mountain Lake characters make appearances. All these paths converge at the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival, in a heart-warming and hilarious collision.As our characters embark on this universal human quest, they are intercepted by Dad's spirit and the magic of the Lake, which offers them a reflection of themselves and leads them to look within for true understanding.
