Last Night’s Lightning

Three jittery friends lounge at a makeshift lake cabin and debate if Greg, who none have seen in five years, will show up.  Boomer schemes a dangerous childhood prank to rekindle the drinking buddy aura of his and Greg’s earlier friendship.  When Greg finally arrives, it’s clear none of them have gotten past the death of their mentor, a high-school teacher killed in car accident that Boomer survived five years earlier.  In the end Greg cannot escape Boomer’s scheme, so turns the tables instead, exposing the consequences of Boomer’s childhood acts in a manner that threatens them all.
