Going Down Maine


As an adult, William looks back on his own loss of innocence and the callousness of youth. A mature remembrance of the unforeseen consequences of youthful indiscretion, as he tries to understand the dark forces that defined his best friend’s character.


As teenagers, Billy and David, along with their beloved dog Big Red, take a trip “going down Maine” for a summer vacation. There, in a strange and isolated upper Maine coastal village, Billy reflects on his friend’s increasing fascination with the disturbing history and dark secrets of the local residents. Youthful choices, on this fateful trip, set in motion a series of irreversible events that change their friendship and forever alter their paths. Here among strangers, they learn the difference between those who choose a path through life and those who fight the path chosen for them.
