Goon Dust Love
Elaine just wanted to save the oceans. Michael just wanted to get high at prom.
But then they ended up in a strange wolf's apartment. They had to burn mom's car, go on the run and sell magazines for Pig Dad. They even had to lie on their college applications.
Goon Dust Love is chosen families and queer love, fandom and financial aid. It’s a melancholy look back at what it was like to grow up at the end of the 90s, in a world teetering between optimism and apathy. It's about realizing that friendships change and the environment's not going to be saved by buying a t-shirt. It's a strange and tender unraveling of the decisions that young people make when they're doing their best and still failing.
