Been going to P-town for 15 years--it is one of the greatest towns on earth---this film captures the amazing beauty of the place--with panoramic views and sunsets---and turns us on to the the rich history and crazy assortment of people who live and visit the town. Now when I'm in my apartment in NYC and miss the place--I can pop in this DVD and I'm transported to the tip of the Cape! It's great! Also--check out the bonus footage and original music video. Worth having in your DVD collection.

Excellent documentary that covers current people and history intermingled. Beautifully put together, well narrated, brings back memories of the many trips I have made to PTown over the years, and covers the changes that have been occurring there. Little tidbits of history that I never knew before!
A wonderful souvenir of PTown.
