Synopsis

Hemingway reveals a more tender side of his psyche with The Garden of Eden , which was published posthumously. David is a writer in the 1920's. He and his newly married wife, Catherine, spend their honeymoon in the Mediterranean. While they are there, they fall in love with a young woman, and begin to explore a deeper side of themselves. Can they navigate their own dark waters enough to hold a triad together?
