Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Indian Summer

A group of childhood friends, now in their 30's reunite at Camp Tamakwa in British Columbia, Canada. Unca Lou Handler (Arkin)has invited them all there because he is planning to close down the camp for good. He feels that he's too old to run it and take care of all the maintenance and upkeep of a busy summer camp for kids. The friends enjoy their time together rehashing the past and reminiscing. Beth (Lane) has not dated in a few years, since the death of her husband and finds herself suddenly attracted to former fellow camper and rebel, Jack Belson (Paxton). Jack feels the same way about Beth. Jamie Ross (Craven) is dating a younger woman, named Gwen (Williams) whom he doesn't treat with respect. Matthew and Kelly Berman's (Spano and Warner) marriage is on shaky ground and his former flame, Jennifer Morton's (Perkins) appearance at the reunion doesn't help matters at all.
