Homeless for more than 25 years in rural Iowa, Marty Freeman is familiar with bad days. Today he is clinging to the hood of a moving Chrysler. This is much more than a bad day. Inspired by actual events, The Lives of Skeletons chronicles a bizarre hit and run accident. Trapped in a garage with strength and sanity slipping, Marty struggles to free himself. His captor, a young sales clerk named Angela, becomes increasingly desperate to cover up all evidence of the accident - including Marty.
