Three Days in August is a barefoot stroll on a glass-filled beach.
Texas. Summer. Current day.
In the opening scene, a man quickly downs two drinks, gets up, andwalks out of a small-town bar. We follow this man, Aiden (Edward James Hyland), all the way to the casket of his dead wife, Maggie (Meg Foster). As mourners begin to file into the church we meet Maggie’s daughter, Shannon (Mollie Milligan), an Irish American artist, mother, and wife. Shannon’s husband Sam (Stephen Snedden) a doctor, and son Liam (Colton Tapp) a high school senior, are both by her side.
