On a cold winter’s evening, under the magnetic magic of the northern lights, several couples in the sleepy, mythical town of Almost, Maine experience love’s joys and perils through a series of romantic, whimsical, unpredictable and often hilarious vignettes. Hearts are embraced, bruised, broken and mended – almost – leaving the people of this remote town forever changed.

Set in the 1920s, this impactful true account chronicles the strength and courage of female factory workers who hand paint glow-in-the-dark watch faces. When their health declines, proving their employer has poisoned them with radium becomes a valiant legal battle. Their story of survival is beautifully tragic as they strive to improve conditions for future working women.
