Shotgun Lovesongs

Nickolas Butler

Henry, Lee, Kip and Ronny grew up together in small-town Wisconsin, though their lives have since taken very different paths. When all four return for a wedding their lifelong bond remains strong, but soon old rivalries resurface and a wife's secret threatens to tear both a marriage and a friendship apart. As love and loyalties are tested, only one thing seems certain - there's nowhere quite like home...
