TRAILER PARK TALES - The stories

Coda

A shot fired out on a cold January night leaves a resident of the trailer park lying dead on the steps leading up to his home, and suspicion soon turns to a woman who lives on the park and with whom he’d been having an affair, but it appears there were several other women captivated by his charm, turning the park into a hot bed of adultery, deceit, betrayal, jealousy and ultimately, murder.

Lament

Prom night promises to be a night when dreams come true for Becky and her boyfriend Max, but after a row with Max, she walks home alone and is brutally raped.  The night and the following years quickly turn into a nightmare for her as she fights for justice. 

Aria

Two mature sisters who live on the park are the total opposite of each other; one reserved, quiet and demure, the other sister outgoing and loud.  They constantly seem to argue as their lifestyles and outlook consistently clash, but their trailer is holding a deadly, dark secret.  How well do you know your neighbors?

Nocturne

Halloween, and many homes on the park are decorated accordingly with gravestones and skeletons.  For three young children, out ‘trick or treating’ around the park, it is a night they will never forget as they dare themselves to spend midnight in the small cemetery on the trailer park. 

Anthem

Most evenings, especially through the warmer months, many kids play soccer on one of the several fields on the trailer park.  Friendly competition though turns into rivalry as two fathers decide to organize a match, on July 4, with their individual sons as captains of the opposing teams, the teams made up from other young people from the park.  It’s Mexico against the Rest of the World and the whole park come out to watch the match.  Game on! 

Ballad

Like thousands before and after her, Jenny moves to Nashville to try and make it as a singer, but as her dreams slowly fade she finds herself totally controlled by the mysterious young woman who she shares a trailer with.  Reality leads to tragedy as Jenny spirals down out of control in a dark world of alcohol, drugs and prostitution.

Requiem

In a desperate attempt to get money to fund their drug habit, a young couple resort to hijacking the school bus that picks up children from the park.  They manage to get the five young children back to their trailer; the plan is to make adult movies using the children, and then sell and move the children on, to another city, to continue in the sex industry.
