Mustang Island is the story of Bill; a regular guy who suffers a break up at a New Year’s Eve party. Desperate to find and win back his ex-girlfriend, he enlists his brother and friend to accompany him on a road trip. They eventually land in an off-season beach town, where he soon finds himself in an awkward yet earnest romance with a local waitress.
