It’s summer on Sway Lake, former playground of the jazz-age New York aristocracy. Young music collector Ollie Sway recruits his only friend, a rowdy Russian drifter, to help him steal a one-of-a-kind vintage record from his own family's glamorous lake house. Ollie believes that possessing the secret recording of the WW2-era hit, “Sway Lake,” will magically boost his confidence with women... and redeem his father, who committed suicide on the lake. But the arrival of Ollie's beguiling grandmother, Charlie Sway, changes everything. The vision of the matriarch transfixes the young Russian... and Charlie has her own plans for the mysterious music, which hasn’t been heard in half a century. For this song may possess the answer to the deepest riddles about love, passion, death, and memory... for whichever lost soul is first to find it.


Mr. Gold is unable to attend the festival due to other commitments.
