The Name Field

Sean Boling

Field and Lulu were the best of childhood friends, bonded by their challenges growing up together in the Special Education program in a coastal valley known for wine and ag tourism. But even their unique connection was not immune to the divergence that often happens when childhood friends reach high school. Thanks to the mentoring of a dedicated volunteer coach, Field followed through on his potential as a wrestler, becoming a local celebrity, while Lulu expressed her experiences through art, and devoted herself to helping those with similar challenges. As their paths are stormed by adulthood, they intersect again. Field is making serious money working for his mentor's side business, which is based in the troubled valley further inland known for staple crops and struggling workers. Lulu is hiding out in that same valley, regrouping from a failed attempt at college. As their shared history reestablishes itself, Field learns that the money he is making comes at a great cost to others. He convinces himself that he can maintain a relationship with both Lulu and his mentor, until events spiral to a point where he can no longer compartmentalize the two.
