A history of violence

Director Karen Winther has a hard time reconciling with her past as a part of Oslo’s right and left wing movements. Through intimate conversations with former political and religious extremists, EXIT explores what makes extremists change their mindset and turn their backs on a life of hatred and violence. At the same time, the documentary also shows how these people live with the shame and life-long regret because of their past actions, and depicts their determined efforts to prevent others from going down the same path.
