Found on the Bottom

An endearing tale of the hapless and the clueless. Orton Spotswood’s splendid suburban isolation is rudely disturbed by news of a homicide. Although by nature a man of “decorous and genteel prevarication when it comes to matters of heroism,” Spotswood is goaded into action by his long-serving (and long-suffering) girlfriend. Events unfold, some of which even threaten to spoil his appetite.

Tormented by freeway hallucinations, but grounded in televised sports and truck stop epiphanies, he soldiers on with unbroken spirit.
