Summer Solstice is a 2003 coming-of-age film in which a college student must discern between the lessons of the academy and the lessons of life. Joshua Ballard (George Fivas) is a struggling college student who can't find the answers to life's deepest questions in a textbook. One day he sits alongside the shore, contemplating his life's purpose, when suddenly he meets Seth Arden (Joe Estevez). Seth is a lighthouse keeper who has no experience with higher education, but whose salty temperament and earthy way of living make more sense to Joshua than anything he's found in school. In addition, Joshua grows fond of Seth's niece, Andrea (Brook Jenell Slack). Meanwhile, Josh's college professor is becoming more demanding and has doubts about whether Joshua can handle the rigors of the academic world. Josh's friends are worried that he's losing touch, but Josh might be on the trail of exactly what he's been looking for.
