In the aftermath of a devastating personal loss, 14 year old Seth Barrow retreats into childhood, forsaking his future and the changed world ahead. Unfortunately for Seth, just because he wants his past back – that doesn’t mean his past wants him back!
As the funeral carries on upstairs, Seth retreats to the basement where the harsh reality of his loss crashes down upon him. Yet in this moment of reality, there is a sudden outburst of surreality. Did his favorite childhood toy actually just try to talk to him? If so, what could it possibly have to say? And if the toy didn't talk - Seth then has to wonder, just how much of his mind has he lost?
Set in the midst of a Midwest summer, The Exit Interview is a story about the remnants of childhood and growing up - whether we want to or not.
