“Shotgun Lovesongs is as true as an honest day’s work, as serious as a busted heart, as welcoming as a warm home fire burning…”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
A small town in rural Wisconsin is the incubator for the friendship and lives of five friends, Lee, Henry, Ronnie, Kip and Beth. They grew up and, in some cases, away from a small rural town Wisconsin, but always made time to reconnect for those big milestone events. Their friendship is strained when a secret comes to light, forcing them to reevaluate their previously untested trust in one another.
Although it’s a very “Americana” story, two of the characters had left their small town (one to Chicago; and the other tells stories of being on the road all over the world, and then NYC), which was interesting to compare against the two that stayed home. They all aged, matured and had full lives, but they were each different in the way they prioritized things, how they valued things, what they aspired to do.
