Get Out. Get Hustlin’. Get Even.

In 1978, after a drug deal goes terribly wrong, David Slaney (played by Allan Hawco) breaks out of a New Brunswick prison, igniting a tense and thrilling chase across Canada.

This masterful adaptation of Lisa Moore’s acclaimed novel delves deep into the complexities of friendship and betrayal, desperation, loyalty, and the quest for a second chance amidst a backdrop of a country-wide manhunt.
