Set in the fictional resort town of Falcon Beach, Manitoba, the show is a Canadian teen drama similar in style to The O.C.
It's about summer. It's about freedom. But it's also about two worlds colliding - that of the summer cottagers and that of the townies who live and work in Falcon Beach year round.
The townies are Jason Tanner, a local wakeboard jock whose father died when he was just a kid; Tanya, Jason's childhood sweetheart who has just returned after a four-year modeling stint in Europe; and Danny, Jason's best friend, a goofy arcade manager.
The cottagers are Paige Bradshaw, a spoiled and snobby Toronto rich girl who wants nothing more than to be doing an internship at her father's big corporation in Toronto rather than be dragged to her mother's childhood memory cove; Lane Bradshaw, Paige's conceited and self-destructive brother, a coke addict and dealer; and Erin, who comes to Falcon Beach every summer to be a lifeguard at the beach.
