Digital presentation - Ah, summertime in America. Good friends, good cocktails, good times, lots of sex…and death? What starts as a (somewhat) wholesome summer vacation soon turns into a hipster’s twisted nightmare in Zach Clark’s dark comedy.

When four old girlfriends rent a beach house for a week, sparks fly. Sugar’s got a crush on Dee-Dee; Dee-Dee is ever reassuring her controlling girlfriend over the phone—even as she flirts with Lorelei; Lorelei will do anything to get over her ex. And Donna just needs to break out of her shell. Dance parties, sunbathing, and piña colada–fueled gab sessions ensue. But when the gals get some LSD from the local surfer dude, their trip takes a bizarre turn—and once the psychedelic dust settles, nothing will ever be the same.

With a pitch-perfect soundtrack by Glass Candy, tongue-in-cheek dialogue, and a keen sense of pop production, Vacation! puts an existential twist on the beach party while satirically slaying the sacred cows of the hipster generation.
