A couple escaping the over-the-top lifestyle of Manhattan's Upper East Side move to the quaint town of Newport, only to be confronted by truths they tried to leave behind.
Nate, a midlevel money manager on Wall Street, and his girlfriend, Emily, can no longer afford their cramped $5,000-a-month apartment on the Upper East Side. They purchase an idyllic small home in Newport and flee city life with their belongings packed tightly in their Jeep Cherokee, eager to start anew. But within minutes of arriving, the car is stolen and they're left with nothing but the keys to their empty house and a crying son.
Over the course of the following three days, as Emily and Nate watch their savings dwindle and tension increase, the secrets they kept from each other in the city emerge - and threaten to destroy their relationship.
The Exiles bravely explores how well we can know those we love - and whether or not a fresh start is possible.
The narrator war wonderful, but the source material lacks any sort of substance. The characters are unlikable, they do terrible things, and suffer no consequences - the characters end up almost exactly as they begin. Only listen to this if you have a desire to listen to manhattanites whine about how painful it is to be priced off of the island.
