Childhood friends, Adam and James, are both back in town for Thanksgiving. After a long night drinking with their hometown crew, the estranged friends decide to hike up the hill where they used to hang out in time past.

In the cold of night, they catch up, reminisce, and wait for the sun to rise.

Is this a welcome reunion or are they projecting on a past that is better left behind? ‘We Were Awesome’ explores the concepts of growing up, friendship, and what we call home.
