JOE KING by Tristan Hartup

Residents of a small town in New England are in a state of decay, with their personal issues growing exponentially and interfering the town's social and financial status. Eventually, an unexpected help comes in the form a mysterious, sarcastic, fast-talking, intelligent and insightful young drifter and self-proclaimed nobody named “Joe King” who attempts to help out the individual residents.
