Dramatic Escape

Dramatic Escape

Dramatic Escape is a hopeful and inspiring documentary film, despite the gritty reality of maximum-security prison.

Meet the self-described street thug in his second prison term. Not convinced by the short sentence in his previous bid, he immediately returned to crime. Meet a gang leader whose people thought he was crazy for giving up violence, or an RTA member in an "aha!" moment, as he catches himself reacting angrily to an innocent situation and realizes that impulse is exactly what landed him in prison.

What Audiences are Saying

​"We were blown away. The men, the RTA staff, the filmmaking, the lessons, the implications. Extraordinary."

"The film is fantastic!  I expected a traditional 'making of' documentary following the progress of staging of A FEW GOOD MEN, not a moving, thoroughly engrossing portrait of RTA and the emotional impact of RTA’s work."
