It’s never too late to reclaim your life...
An empty nester retreats to Cape Cod where she embarks upon a quest to set herself free.
After 30 years as a wife and mother, Joan retreats to Cape Cod rather than follow her husband to Kansas. Intent on rediscovering herself, but plagued with guilt, she questions her decision until stumbling upon a spirited mentor. Supported by her literary agent and a host of locals, including a sexy fisherman, Joan learns to embrace the ebb and flow of life.
The area’s wildlife is featured throughout, filmed on Cape Cod. Cape Cod’s National Seashore incorporates 43,607 acres of picturesque ponds, woodlands and Atlantic beachfront.
Based on Joan Anderson's NYT Bestseller: A Year By The Sea
Quote from filmmaker Alexander Janko:
Our film’s message—it’s never too late to reclaim your life—counters the agism prevalent in today’s film industry...and nation. No one should ever feel they’ve outlived their usefulness. No matter how “old” you are, you still have the power to celebrate life, change in meaningful ways, experience new adventures and find happiness. If audiences are inspired by this message, we’ve done service to Joan’s story. If YEAR BY THE SEA entertains, stirs emotions and provokes a dialogue, then I’ve accomplished my goal as an indie filmmaker.
