The Getaway



A documentary about a dream that keeps on going.

Every summer for the last 33 years, a group of Dutch friends have been escaping their regular routine to make music for a week in France. This annual journey is a trip back to their -what used to be- careless student- lives, because even though they’re unknown in the Netherlands, in the French villages they’re a true phenomenon. The Getaway is a story about freedom, ideals, brotherhood, but also about aging and being forced to take a look at where you are in life.
