"Out" is a film about the life and times of Laura Whitehorn, an out lesbian and one of six defendants in the Resistance Conspiracy Case. She spent fourteen years in prison, convicted of the 1983 U. S. Capitol Bombing and "conspiring to influence, change and protes polices and practices of the United States government through violent and illegal means." Her story is the story of five tumultuous decades of struggle for freedom and justice.
