Backwater Town

Having lived his whole life in a small rural town, he watched the town decline from a once prosperous country village to the hollowed-out "ghost town" he now inhabits. Friends he grew up with moved away for good as the mills closed and jobs were almost impossible to find. He finds himself left behind in his hometown where vibrant store fronts have become empty stores with vacant windows, and where plywood covers up the old movie house marquee. Yet, he's mysteriously held in place in this Backwater Town as he assures us and himself...."if I could leave you know I would."
