On My Way Out
From producer Howie Mandel comes a heartbreaking, hilarious and surprising story about a (nearly) perfect marriage. Holocaust survivors Roman (Popi) and Ruth Blank created new lives in America, ran a successful business and raised a loving family. That is until Popi, at age 95, decides to live life as an openly gay man. Filmmakers Brandon and Skyler Gross’ intimate and moving documentary follows Popi’s “coming out” and its effect on his wife and family. This exploration of the deep and transcendent love shared by these nona-nonagenarian Holocaust survivors Is unforgettable.
