The Mistover Tale tells the story of the frustrated and ambitious Cliona (Naomi Packard Dunn), whose great desire is to leave her native island for the city. When her handsome lover Ned (Kevin Rice) marries the prim Tamsin (Heidi Pulkkinen), Cliona feels betrayed. She turns to Tamsin’s brother Henry (Harry Tappan Heher), who has recently returned to the island, having left a promising career in New York City. Cliona perceives him as her ticket out, while Henry sees her as the key to a simpler island life. They marry, horrifying his proper mother Mrs. Goodrich (Lee Fierro). As time passes Cliona and Henry realize their crossed intentions, and their marriage sours. Desperate, Cliona renews her affair with Ned, which catches the eye of handyman Redmond (Patrick Henaghan), setting off conflicts that impel them to escape.

The Mistover Tale is a modern interpretation of Thomas Hardy's classic tragic novel, The Return of the Native and is set vaguely in the late 1970's/early 1980's on the island of Martha's Vineyard.
