The Shadow Box is the story of three terminal patients at a secluded hospital, all of whom have agreed to sit for a series of psychological interviews. The three live in cabins, the titular Shadow Boxes, on the hospital grounds. Their neuroses and their feelings about their impending deaths are probed in depth during the interviews, which serve as frame devices for the characters to expound on their pasts and on their motivations.
