My Summer of Love

Synopsis: A tale of obsession and deception, and the struggle for love and faith in a world where both seem impossible. The film charts the emotional and physical hothouse effects that bloom one summer for two young women: Mona, behind a spiky exterior, hides an untapped intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily life; Tamsin is well-educated, spoiled and cynical. Complete opposites, each is wary of the other's differences when they first meet, but this coolness soon melts into mutual fascination, amusement and attraction. Adding volatility is Mona's older brother Phil, who has renounced his criminal past for religious fervor - which he tries to impose upon his sister. Mona, however, is experiencing her own rapture. "We must never be parted," Tamsin intones to Mona but can Mona completely trust her?

Are you all right?

Did you crash or something?

No, I was just resting.

What's your name?


You don't look like a "Mona."

It's not me real name.

It's because of me brother.

I were always complaining as a kid,

so he started calling me "the Mona."

'Cause me real name is Lisa.

Mona Lisa. Get it?

Yeah, I've studied the original.

I'm Tamsin.

I like your bike.

Yeah? It's a Honda.

I just got it off some

Gyppos up at the maggot farm.

It doesn't appear to have an engine.

It were only a tenner.

What's the point of a

bike without an engine?

I'm getting one next week. Okay.

This is where I live.

I've never seen you here before.

Yeah. That's because I'm

only here on school holidays.

Do you go to boarding school?

Yeah, but I've just been suspended.

Apparently, I'm a bad

influence on people.

Do you want to come in? No.

I've got to go. Okay.

Drop by if you're bored.

You're invited, and I'm

here all summer, you know.

What are you doing?

Have faith in me, yeah?

You are a bastard. It's all you are.

And I want this place back

the way it was. It can't be.

I looked at the pub and I thought...

"What have I been doing?"

Thank you, Lord. I now see

what I can do. That's right.

I won't run this as a pub.

I'll run this as a spiritual center

so that people can come here...

and learn about Jesus Christ.

Because we're going to

claim this valley back...

in the name of Lord Jesus Christ.

Because people need

spiritual fulfillment.

They need to know that

the Lord is there for them.

Yes, Lord. They need a makeover.

They need to know that

You are their Lord. Amen.

Will you help me do this? Yeah, we will.

How great is the Lord?

We're going to bring

love to this valley.

We're going to bring the

name of Jesus Christ...

to the lost people in this valley.

We're going to let them know

that He is there for them.

Yes, Lord. Thank you.

Thank you. God bless you for this.

In the precious name of Jesus, let us

bring this idea, this vision from You.

Father God, we lift this pub up to

you, Lord. We thank you, Father God...

that you have taken it from the enemy.

We just pray for this valley.

Pray for our brother here, now.

Let us anoint him, Lord.

In the precious name of Jesus....

Come forth now, Father. Confess Your

name to every living person, Father God.

Come to me, my darling.

Come to me right now.

Let Your fire come out.

Let the power just

come, Lord, let it come.

Bless us, Lord Jesus, You have....

Praise the Lord.

Pray to give me more

passion, Lord. More passion.

Yes. And just gain the strength.

Jesus. Thank you, Father God.

Let's go out somewhere now.

Somewhere nice like a club or summat.

Look, I've had enough of all this.

It's over between me and you now.

What? It were good fun. It's finished.

I've had enough. Get in

the car. I'll take you home.

You could've told me that before.

Yeah, like I'm gonna. Get in the car.

No, I fucking will not. Suit yourself.

You are a pig!


Is Tamsin in?

Yeah, she's in her room, as usual.

Have fun.

That was The Swan by St. Saens.

I live above The Swan.

The pub.

You live in a pub? Yeah.

But, it's not like a pub any

more. It's more like a temple.

It's me brother. He found God.

Or God found him. He's been born again.

And the pub, now, is more like not so

much a place to drink, as a place to pray.

Anyway, they're having

born-again bingo or something...

so I thought I'd bob off.

So, it's just you and

your brother in your pub?

Just me, me brother, and God.

Is he completely mad?


What happened to him?

He went inside and he came out funny.
