    Drama

    Set in the Czech Republic in 2013, THE WAY OUT is the story of a young Roma woman who wishes to live an ordinary life – something almost impossible for the minority she belongs to. Alone, she leads an unequal struggle against a mostly hostile majority while preserving all of her dignity and love.
