They will prosecute a mother for keeping her children safe!
Cyndy Shoemaker
Incredible, yet true, this story is about system failure to protect children caught in the court system and how a mother's love can overcome enormous obstacles.
Cynthia Cheatham
This film is a must see for anyone who cares about children and loves this country.

No Way Out But One is by far the best documentary I've ever seen. In fact, I've watched it three times and can't wait to see it two more times at the April 27 conference "National Scandal: Family Courts Give Children to Identified Pedophiles" in Davis, CA [...] and at the May 10-12 Battered Mothers Custody Conference in Washington DC [...].

No Way Out But One describes the impossible Catch 22 confronted by mothers trying to protect their children in family (divorce) courts across the nation. The system fails children who report parental abuse in a way that defies belief. Garland Waller captured the nearly impossible conundrum of the Collins family and wove it into a beautifully filmed story of hope and triumph.

Like Holly Collins, I sought to protect my children from abuse. Unlike Holly, I remained in the United States and I followed all of the court's orders. My abusive ex-husband was awarded full custody of our two minor children in November 1998. My children never came home again. What happened to me and my children substantiates that Holly truly had no way out but one. For anyone who might wonder if Holly could have stayed in the U.S. and protected her children somehow, I'm living proof she could not. What Holly did took enormous strength and courage. She had perseverance against all odds. In my opinion, every person who views this documentary will realize once and for all that something is terribly wrong in America's family court system. Barry Nolan and Garland Waller managed to capture a very lucid 'snapshot' of an injustice that's unthinkable. Even though I've lived without my children for the past 15 years and know firsthand that there is no way out but one, I soaked up this film as if I'd never heard of anything like Holly's story or my story. Beyond excellent! I wish I could rate it 10 stars.

Format: DVD
"No Way Out But One" (2011 release; 89 min.) originally came out about 18 months ago, pretty much having been financed through Kickstarter and then self-released by the writers-directors-producers Barry Nolan and Garland Waller. It recently has been re-released by the folks at Passion River.

The documentary brings the story of how Holly Ann Collins and her two young children are living in the early 1990s in abuse from the husband/father. For reasons that are being explained painstakingly in the movie, it is apparently the case in the US justice system that when one parent alleges abusive behavior against the other, the abusing parent will usually counter-allege with "Parental Alienation Syndrom" (in lay-man terms: that the mother is coaching her kids to not want to spend time with the abusive father), and that abusing parent usually will win. So too in this case, and the Minnesota family court, despite ample evidence of physical abuse, awards full custody of the kids to the abusing father. Holly Ann does not see an end to this, and decides to flee with her young kids, eventually ending up in the Netherlands. To tell you more of the story would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first and foremost, as is the case with these types of documentaries, you will be disgusted and enraged with this miscarriage of justice in our court system (other such recent documentaries: West of Memphis; The Central Park Five; Crime After Crime). The best part of the documentary is when Holly Ann and her kids are on the run, and she brings us the hair-raising tales of their underground run. Holly Ann and her now-grown up kids (17 years after they fled the US) are interviewed extensively, as are family and friends.

This is a powerful and important story. Holly Collins has all sorts of medical and eye witness evidence that the children's father and step mother are physically abusive and even cracked the boy's skull. The children are terrified, but no one in the family court cares about that, and they don't even bother to look at the evidence. There are no consequences for the family court appointees who lie and/or refuse to look at the evidence.

Thank goodness this mom manages to escape to the Netherlands with her children, where officials take the time to look at the evidence, and even take a new MRI of the boy's skull, which corroborates the abuse, and motivates the Dutch people to grant asylum to the family.

This is a story not just of Holly and her children's courage, but is also the story of the broken Family Court system, which is putting children into the hands of their identified abusers every day. Hopefully this film and others like it will make people understand that the family court system needs to be changed, and that this is URGENT.

No Way Out But One is an incredible look into our reality that 53,000 children a year face, and nobody else wants to look at, children being taken away from a protective parent and placed with an abuser. This number is more than twice that of children being stricken with cancer each year.

This film beautiful encapsulates the journey of a protective mother who would do anything for her children when the system that was designed to protect children not only turned their backs to them, but blamed the voice of truth to ignore the ugly truth of abuse.

At a screening last year in Marin, we heard from the director and producer about this crisis across America. This is the current civil rights pandemic and NWOBO is bringing this issue to the forefront. Watch this, share this and be a part of a change for children and families to find a safe way out! See why we should all believe the child!
