Norman & Ethel spend their summers on a lake known as Golden Pond in New England. During a summer in the early 80’s they are visited by their adult daughter Chelsea, her new fiance and his son Billy Jr. Chelsea and her father Norman have had a troubled relationship and have existed for years in an uncomfortable territory of awkward conversations and misunderstandings.

Billy Jr. spends some time alone with his new grandparents while his father and Chelsea are on holiday and in that time forge a relationship that Chelsea always longed for.

ON GOLDEN POND also illustrates the troubles an aging couple often has in their twilight years. We find it’s never too late to find common ground where we can heal wounds often concealed by silence.
