the story

Early summer, 2009 leaves a mark on Magz she can’t erase. Rooted sexism and southern suppression plant a seed in her mind that bad boys are a good time. Ready to get away from the pretension of prep school, Magz and Lana begin their summer hanging with old and new friends, sneaking out, trying drugs and alcohol. Juggling the summer heat and hormones while stuck living in a bad neighborhood they end up entertaining themselves in all the worst ways, at the influence of town ring leader Charlie Merc. Tanglewood offers healing and empowerment for anyone who’s been damaged, betrayed or hurt by someone they thought loved them back.
