The film "The Escape" is first and foremost a road film. A journey that follows a unique, original and almost impossible story.
Eight outspoken teenagers of varying backgrounds and identities from all over the country go out for a personal and fascinating journey following "The Escape Movement". The film is an historical film, but not in the regular sense of the term. Throughout the 14 day and 14 night journey the teenagers experience places rich with memory, through meetings with witnesses and survivors and their personal stories, and coincidental and non-coincidental meetings with the local population. Each meeting and personal story sheds light on one aspect of the multifaceted movement of "The Escape".
