The d Life by Boo Killebrew, April 12th, 7PM
Everybody lives in a trailer. Everybody is addicted to something. Everybody wants out. But everybody can make do staying in. The d Life tells the story of Maggie and Mikey, high-school sweethearts who can't seem to shake each other loose. They cohabitate in a world of mixed tape nostalgia, while their friends and family try to force them to live in the reality of a small southern town.
