Norway/Germany/Sweden, 2018, 85 min
In EXIT, we meet Angela from the US and Ingo and Manuel from Germany, all former right-wing extremists who made the leap to leave their movement. They are now forced to live isolated lives in hiding due to their dangerous pasts. In Denmark, we explore the other side of the spectrum when Søren shares the story of his life a former left-wing extremist. Director Karen Winther also meets Frenchman David, who was active in the Armed Islamic Group and who has served 6 years in prison for terrorist activities. Reflecting on her very own extremist past and the stories of the people she meets along her travels, Winther walks us through how she arrived at her own „wake-up call“ and the extraordinary journey that followed.
