Never Going Back is set in a small town in the British Columbia interior, where loggers, environmentalists, conspiracy theorists, and aging hippies provide a vibrant backdrop to the dark themes explored in the narrative. The anniversary of a suicide reunites five former friends who havent seen each other for ten years, and each is forced to confront secrets from the past. Through the perspectives of Siobhan, Evan, and Lance, layers of the past peel away to expose connections to the central trauma of their shared lives. This story is about memory, loss and redemption, and moving beyond nostalgia and into the future with perspective and understanding. It focuses on the role that many of us play in a tragedy, watching helplessly from the sidelines, believing we are not involved when, in fact, we are.
