Great Documentary!
5 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great documentary. It shows some of the realities of prison, and why it's not a pleasant place to go. It's a good learning tool for young people. Not just at risk young people but all.

Now as for the women they primarily focused on, one being Marjorie Braggs, serving a life without the possibility of parole sentence. She sees her grandchildren regularly. However, she should not give her grandchildren false hope by telling them she will be home someday. It's not going to happen.

Another inmate Mary Riley, who goes to warden Jones wanting a cemetery to be built on the prison grounds is asking too much. She has been a problem most of her life as well. As the warden puts it: "you've been your own worst enemy."

Then there is keanau Reeves who after three years in prison enters rehab but relapses. Also, Heather Heather Zeringue who after being denied parole had to serve out her last eight months. Then the death row inmate Antoinette Frank who killed a New Orlans cop that was her partner and two children of a Vietnamese couple who owned a restaurant.
