This powerful documentary is about the release of thousands of inmates who had been previously sentenced to life in prison. Their release comes after California amended its “Three Strikes” law in 2012, and is one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the country. This documentary follows the lives of newly freed prisoners, families looking to rekindle with their loved ones, and attorneys and judges that are taking the law into their own hands.
