Leo Meurso is a trained mercenary who decides to return home after twenty years of disappearance. His plan is to attend his best friend’s wake and to crash his high school sweethearts wedding, both scheduled on the same day. In between such polarizing events, and motivated by the reality that at any juncture of the day he will soon be killed himself, Leo revisits family, the girl next door, the town fool still pining for his friendship, not to mention a host of others in a small canal town bursting with the revelation of past secrets, sexual deviances, nostalgic memories, and the ultimate goal of “saving face.” In turn, his one-day nostalgic tour of his Canadian hometown explores the ramifications of his sudden disappearance while revisiting the reasons why he left his home in the first place. Heavily influenced by Camus’ Outsider and recently corroborated by Julian Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending, Lock 7 is an edgy, poetic, modern day literary parable about a man’s confrontation with death on the eve of his life’s ironic resurrection.  Does Leo accept the justified consequences of past actions, or does his epiphany lift him to a fluid afterlife?
