We spend our lives transitioning and arriving. If we’re ready to move on —whether it’s leaving a city, a job, a relationship— we plan the heck out of our departure.

One Way is the story about the sacrifices made by those who leave their hometown to live like expats in the search of something better. Of how often expats become detached from their home places but can’t still fit in the new place.

7 people at a dinner reunion, a steadicam operator and a crew of 20 will dance to a 15 minute oner (one shot) carefully rehearsed to perfection. Lighting and set dressing will change live during the take and every single detail will be finely tuned to get ONE WAY, and one only, made. The one way you chose when you decide to move abroad.

Crowdfunding is love-funding. ONE WAY needs your help!
