SUMMER OF 8 follows eight close friends as they soak up their last day of summer before parting ways for college. On the beach at dawn, the friends ask themselves a question: what would make their last twenty-four hours together “perfect?” In turn, each confronts what weighs on their minds and the college-bound comrades settle in for one final sun-kissed day…and revelry-filled night. When the next dawn breaks, the friends part ways knowing they may never recapture the perfection of their final day, or the bonds they are leaving behind.
