The past. Before. Ages ago. We all tend to live in the past when tragedy plagues the days that we spent. Meet Easton. A young, captivating teenager whose emotions sometimes take hold of him too easily. His mom died 3 months ago and his life has been on a downward spiral. His dad has started drinking ever since his mom died. Escape portrays the changes that Easton’s family makes in order to improve their miserable life. Escape starts with a typical morning that Easton always faces, a morning filled with dread and dislike for his drunkard dad. As the film progresses we can see that Easton is faced with some internal conflict stemming from the absence of his mom and neglect from his dad. As the journey continues the family must overcome obstacles from their past in order to create a better future for themselves. Easton and his dad discover that it is much easier to let go of the past rather than dwell on it.
