Some neighborhoods have houses with backyards. Others have parks and playgrounds. But down in the Flats, Benny has his monsters: Sid, Bridgette, and Cedric— massive steel bridges connecting his community with the roads and city above. Every morning, Benny watches, waiting, knowing his monsters will appear— something he can always count on, even if the one person he’s hoping to see is working a double-shift.
In the vein of NIGHT JOB and LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET, THE FLATS shows a world that’s gritty and magical. And that sometimes the most important moments are unexpected and filled with love.
