What kind of love is like a dream in Eden? Is it strengthened by need? Or is it innocent and unsuspecting?
Drawn against the majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest, THE SPINDRIFT is a bittersweet portrait of love, obsession, and addiction in the late 1950's and early 1960's.
Ginny Solje, a fiery, young idealist has moved to Seattle to rebuild her life after a devastating breakup. She meets Nathan Ecklund, an ambitious dreamer who is haunted by memories of an alcoholic father and violent childhood. He is drawn irresistibly to the compulsive redhead, whose passion and mischievous spirit exceed his every desire. Yet, she is deeply wounded, and he soon discovers that she is vulnerable and could easily shatter.
They fall deeply in love, marry, and become inseparable; but their rebellious instincts threaten to destroy their sanity as they plunge headlong into a fantasy of nightlife, sex, and alcohol.
When Nathan becomes delusional and attempts suicide, Ginny is faced with a terrifying decision: she can surrender her love or commence the long, dark journey out of terror and addiction.
Inspired by a true event, THE SPINDRIFT is a testament to the sanctity of hope and the power of unconditional love.
