Jonny Beauchamp, Mike Manning, Ashleigh Murray and Sherri Shepherd star in this gritty new drama from writer-director Barry Jay.
The Way Out follows Beauchamp as Alex Romero, a pizza delivery boy who hopes to one day become a successful singer/songwriter. The trouble is, he’s still recovering from major childhood trauma. He is also an addict who has great difficulty staying sober.
After the death of his abusive father, Alex inherits the family home and all its bills. Against the advice of his closest friend and sponsor, Alex takes in a charming and manipulative roommate named Shane. A trained fighter, Shane sees how shut down Alex is as a result of past abuse and decides to take him under his wing, teaching him to stand up for himself.
Shane’s relentless coaching soon leads Alex down a dark and violent path – one that could jeopardize not only his sobriety, but his life and the lives of those he loves.
