    • Synopsis
    • THE CALIFORNIANS is a romantic comedy set along the pristine coastline of Northern California where a battle rages between developers and environmentalists.
      Gavin commences an affair with Zoe, unbeknownst to Olive. He introduces her to golf, jet skis, oysters and the lifestyle of the social set.
      As Zoe prepares to take the stage for the performance that will launch her career, she is forced to choose. Will she dedicate her life and singing career to Olive and the environmental cause, or will she turn 180 degrees and give up her politics to live a life of upscale recreation with Gavin - a hilarious yet ominous update of Henry James’ Bostonians.
