The Way Out is an experimental film that uses documentary footage of a lengthy conversation with Mrs Gabrijela, who recently lost someone close to her. She shares her deepest emotions and most pleasant memories with the filmmaker, while trying to express her sorrow and anxiety. The filmmaker’s involvement with the protagonist, the emotional subject matter and the process of filmmaking itself are all made explicit.
