In Winter 2011, New York fashion student Amy’s quasi-radical boyfriend ditches her for the Occupy Wall Street movement, resigning her to spend the holidays at home in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, or Skook to the locals. Between reuniting with her hometown friends and meeting her dad’s new lady, she slips back into the slow-paced rhythm of life, until a chance encounter with Jordan, a boy from her past shakes things up. The ex-cool-kid haunted her awkward high school years, but their rapport grows and evolves during her time at home. Caught off-guard by the excitement of a new love so removed from her life in the city, Amy learns that perhaps her inner Skook isn’t as dead as she’d hoped.
