Top Load

By Jerrod Bogard

Top Load ushers you through a gauntlet of four interconnected stories. As each chapter's supporting character becomes the protagonist of the next, we follow a trail of domestic hopes and regrets illuminating the interconnections of these small town strangers at once beautiful, comic, and grotesque. The landslide starts with a tire iron, some duct tape, and a declaration of desperate love.
