Full Synopsis

In this touching story of family and forgiveness, an estranged father and daughter reunite to confront the years they’ve lost, and to discover how much they still have to offer.

With her mother and stepfather in Europe for the summer, 17-year-old Alison (Kristen Bell, The Shield) is on her own and on a mission. With a bus ticket in hand and Flagstaff, Arizona as her destination, she plans to confront her father, Al Dodge (Emmy nominee Tim Matheson, Animal House), the man who abandoned their family when she was five years old. What she discovers is less a father figure than a hard drinker and a loner, weather-beaten from years of physical labor and emotionally defunct. Alison may be disillusioned, but her father has his supporters: Auggie Sinclair (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Ed Asner, The Mary Tyler Moore Show), a local with a passion for literature, music, and decent people, and Sandy Bateman (Sean Young, Blade Runner), who knows Al’s capacity for love—however hidden—and his need to feel loved.

But for Al, facing the mistakes of the past is too hard to bear. Seeing Alison again only serves to remind him of the most painful one of all. Rather than reconcile with the little girl he left behind, he asks his daughter to leave. As stubborn as her father, Alison isn’t budging. She has her own priorities during this remarkable summer: a budding first love with local boy Tim Spooner (Bug Hall, The Little Rascals), illuminating and educational new friendships with Auggie and Sandy, and most of all, a chance to finally know and love her father—to forgive his mistakes, to let go of the past, and to form a true and unbreakable bond that will last forever.

A film that speaks to the heart, and from the heart, The King and Queen of Moonlight Bay is an emotionally inspiring experience for anyone who ever needed to love and be loved or ever made a mistake and needed to be forgiven.
