“It would be nice to have something greater, for once, yunno?”

19-year-old Jalani Vargo wonders, desiring a break from his empty lust and growing melancholy. Suddenly, however, he meets the brilliant Keandre Donahue, a diplomat’s son, and their worlds are flipped upside down. Inseparable, the two fall deeply in love and bask in their newfound happiness. Yet as time and fate come rushing near, their responsibilities to their families and futures threaten to tear them apart forever. Set in the dead of summer at a historic black vacation village, HOLIDAY captures both the vitality and fragility of true romance in all of its poetic, exciting, and explosive glory.
