No Way Out But One (DVD)
90 min.
- Instructional Video
Summary:
A documentary which presents the story of Holly Collins, who, in 1994, became an international fugitive when she grabbed her three children and went on the run. It all happened because a family court had ignored Holly's charges, the children's pleas, Holly's broken nose, Zackary's fractured skull, and other medical evidence of domestic violence. The family court gave full custody of Zackary and Jennifer to Holly's ex-husband. It was at that point that Holly came to believe she and the children had No Way Out But One. In what has become an incredible saga, Holly eventually fled the United States. For a while, she lived beneath the radar, hiding on Indian reservations, in Mexico and Guatemala. With three children and no passports, incredibly, she made it to Amsterdam where she blurted out a plea for asylum. The fact that she was fleeing domestic violence and would not be protected if she were returned to the US, seemed ridiculous at first. But Holly had come armed with legal and medical documents. At first, she and her children were treated as refugees, living in a refugee center with others fleeing violence from around the world. Living shoulder to shoulder with people learning to use indoor plumbing for the first time in their lives, Holly and her kids made the best of it. At least they were safe. Holly became the first US citizen to be granted asylum by the government of the Netherlands. She lived a quiet, low profile life for the next 14 years, until FBI agents came calling. Hoping to return Holly to the US to face kidnapping charges, they interviewed her now grown children. Jennifer and Zackary told the agents that far from being their kidnapper, their mother was their savior and their hero. Eventually, all charges against Holly were dropped, save one: contempt of court. In September of 2011, Holly and her children returned to the US.
