Deeply moving
20 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Compassion, courage, forgiveness, redemption...these are some of the words that capture what this documentary embodies. None of us get out alive. We are all here for a very short time. These men have tried and succeeded to create a life that matters. I am moved and inspired by each of them. All of us have made terrible choices and done terrible things in our lives--none of us get to cast the first stone. The men imprisoned here were very articulate and deeply humble--they killed innocents, and led others into horrific lives, but they were given a tremendous gift in being allowed to touch the lives of other human beings with love and tenderness.
