Convicted of the 1983 U.S. Capitol Bombing, and "conspiring to influence, change, and protest policies and practices of the United States government through violent and illegal means", Laura Whitehorn, an out lesbian and one of six defendants in the Resistance Conspiracy Case, spent 14 years in prison. "OUT" is the story of her life and times: five tumultuous decades of struggle for freedom and justice. Whether you agree or disagree with radical left politics, this is a documentary that will challenge you to think about what you might be willing to risk for your own beliefs.
"The film skillfully interpolates historical footage of a 'whites only' world with the life story of an exceptionally engaging woman who was not only a revolutionary who acted on her principles, but also a lesbian."
- Bay Area Reporter
"Seeing 'OUT' is worthwhile not only for progressive politicos, but for anyone who can appreciate the story of a classic American type: the conscientious rebel"
