Description: "Lymelife" is a story about the dark side of suburban paradise and the loss of innocence. It centers on two deeply troubled, dysfunctional families during the late 1970s. The film revolves around an awkward, sensitive 15-year old boy, Scott Bartlett, whose family life is turned upside-down after an outbreak of Lyme disease hits the community spreading illness and paranoia. Scott's parents -- a workaholic father, Mickey and an overprotective mother, Brenda -- are on the verge of a divorce as his older brother Jim is about to ship off for war. Scott also has a longtime crush on his next door neighbor, Adrianna Bragg, who seems to be the only person in the world to understand him. Adrianna has an equally troubled, less affluent family including an uptight mother, Melissa, carrying on a not-so-clandestine love affair, and a father, Charlie, slowly slipping away from the effects of Lyme disease. Both profoundly funny and deeply moving, "Lymelife" looks at first love and families in transition during a time of drastic economic and cultural change.
