The Next Town Over.
In a small prairie town, a young girl has gone missing. A policeman interviews the entire town but cannot seem to figure out where she has gone. Meanwhile, the other townspeople go about their lives, searching, playing, living.
Told from the perspectives and memories of the young girl and the policeman, these two characters offer a map of the events that occurred in the first seven days after she has disappeared.
The Next Town Over is a whimsical, dustbowl-era, slightly absurdist exploration of small-town life-and the types of people who inhabit those places. Each character seems to be searching for something-whether they have been there their entire lives or are just passing through.
Inspired by the short story Marcie’s Place by Credence McFadzean
