  • Synopsis

    A group of friends who've gone their separate ways meet back at their teenage haunt, the town park and playground, known as the Pleasure Ground. The town is dying, the Pleasure Ground's glory has faded, and life hasn't quite matched up to youthful expectations. Over their night together, buried secrets become unearthed, past grievances boil over, and scores are settled.
