It Never Ends, The Terrible Life of Carl
How does a fat kid with no friends, bad grades, whose parents hate him and the community snickers at his every move, grow up to be a Colonel and the Chief of Staff of an Army Division? It Never Ends chronicles the terrible life of Carl and his evolution from imaginary crime fighter to retired Army Colonel.
Our tale starts when Carl's parents refuse to see their first grandchild. Confused and angry, Carl takes us back to his childhood that starts at the city dump and later moves to a small house in the country where he watches horror movies with his suicidal neighbor. His father moves the family to the quaint town of Fairport, NY. Carl's new house is set on a Norman Rockwell-like cul-de-sac that becomes the setting for Carl's personal hell. This is a hysterical look at the life of a adolescent loser who despite his circumstances concludes that success is a decision. Carl joins the Army, marries the girl of his dreams, raises his own kids all the while he is tormented by his past.
