“ Get out if you Can” is both the translation of Zinda Bhaag and the credo by which its characters live. Pakistan’s first official Oscar entry in 50 years depicts life in Lahore. Three friends Khaldi, Chitta and Tambi literally beg, borrow, and steal to get by in their everyday lives while they look westward for something more than mere existence. The potential costs of this dream are financial servitude, legal minefields, and emotional and physical danger.
The journey that unfolds through the story of this film gives us a glimpse of the everyday lives of many young men and women in Pakistan.
