I believe that anyone can improvise—anyone!  And if you're saying, "Nuh-uh, not me!" then I must respectfully disagree.  Sorry to be so blunt, but I've witnessed it time and time again.  ANYONE can improvise.  —Lulu French, Instructor

When Lily, Anna and her husband Malcolm retreat to their late father's cabin in Cape Cod, they expect to relax, unwind and take stock. But when a charming but shadowy drifter enters the picture angling for Lily's heart, their pilgrimage takes a surprising turn.
