In 1960's New England, Sam and Suzy meet after the former sneaks backstage before a show, which features the latter. The pair fall in love and, from then on, communicate by writing letters. The pair makes a pact to run away together. Sam will escape from his summer camp and Suzy will climb out of her bedroom window.
Suzy's disappearance is noticed not too long after her escape, and initially her family aren't too bothered. Meanwhile, Sam's escape is discovered the next morning by the summer camp warden, when he notices a hole in Sam's tent. The alarm is raised and the local authorities set out to look for the children.
Meanwhile, Sam and Suzy meet in a meadow and head into the forest on the island where they live. They are unaware that a violent storm is on the horizon but nearly the entire community - who is looking for them - does, which intensifies the search to find the young lovers before it's too late.
