On his way to work, Berlin real estate developer Karl wants to drop his kids off at school. But when he starts the car, his phone rings: The strange caller tells him there’s a bomb under his seat which will blow up if Karl or the kids try to get out. He demands Karl come up with a large sum of money very quickly. When his wife starts to suspect him of kidnapping the children, the cops come after Karl too, including explosives expert Pia. A deadly race against time begins: At the mercy of the bomb and pursued by the police, Karl desperately tries to save his kids and himself.

Genre specialist Christian Alvart (PANDORUM, ANTIBODIES, NICK: OFF DUTY) stages this high-suspense thriller with an A-list cast: Wotan Wilke Möhring (WHO AM I) delivers an outstanding performance as somber Karl, international Emmy® award-winner Christiane Paul (THE WAVE, IN JULY) plays his distrustful wife, and Hannah Herzsprung (FOUR MINUTES, WHO AM I) the smart, sensitive bomb expert. Shot at some of Berlin’s most famous locations and produced by genre powerhouse Syrreal Entertainment, DON’T.GET.OUT! makes for high-value, edge-of-the-seat action cinema.

Christian Alvart was born in 1974. He never attended film school, yet – self-taught – he still managed to make the leap to becoming a director. After teaching himself the craft in various assistant positions, he founded his production company Syrreal Entertainment in 1997 in Berlin. In 1999, he made his feature film debut with CURIOSITY & THE CAT, which was nominated for the Max Ophüls Prize. After his second feature film ANTIBODIES (2005), he moved to Hollywood, where he was able to prove his passion for genre films on a grand scale. For Paramount, he directed horror-thriller FALL 39 (2007), followed by the sci-fi thriller PANDORUM (2008). Back in Germany, Alvart worked as a director for the TATORT series and was hired as the director for the Hamburg episodes of the series featuring Til Schweiger. His thriller BANKLADY was released theatrically in 2013. In 2015, he directed the buddy-comedy HALF BROTHERS followed by the TATORT feature film TSCHILLER - OFF DUTY in 2016. He also serves as showrunner for the Netflix series DOGS OF BERLIN. His production company has acquired the worldwide rights for CAPTAIN FUTURE and is working on a live-action version of the series.
