He’ll be back soon. But I feel so anxious. It’s probably nothing.  Set in an idyllic, but isolated old house overlooking the water, and in two different times, A Summer Day captures the dilemma of love in the moment, as well as a distant memory. Fosse's poetic, haunting, everyday language reminds us of potential in every moment and the suspense of being alive.
