Canada and Trinidad & Tobago | 2015 | Short

Synopsis: 14-year-old Varia and her side-kick Audrey (who they call “Mice”) break out of a girl’s home in Belmont, and set off on a road trip to find their friend Pinkie in a village with a pretty name, Rampanalgas, on the North Coast. Along the way, the boisterous vulnerable pair encounter life-changing adventures and mishaps, that challenge their perceptions and resources. Break Out is a road movie that explores the stunning diversity and physical beauty, urban and rural, of Trinidad and Tobago, and the equally harsh and devastating inner terrain of its young characters’ lives.
