Agoston is a middle-aged power-plant worker in Slovakia. One day he is abruptly told he has lost his job as part of an immediate staff reduction. With no other prospects, he decides to take a risk and travel to Latvia for a position as a welder in a shipyard. When he arrives, however, the job does not work out and Agoston is now adrift in a foreign land. Far from his family and uncertain of his next move, he begins an odyssey of self-discovery and reflection. OUT chronicles his journey to redefine himself at mid-life. With little money and few possessions, Agoston embarks on a series of strange encounters with odd individuals, setting about the terrifying yet exhilarating task of crafting a fresh future from the collective jumble of his past. OUT is a fantastical trip through one man’s possibilities. Using stunning visuals to enfold Agoston’s quiet moments and bizarre experiences, OUT takes you on a rich and deeply personal adventure.
