Storyline

The Governor of Illinois granted filmmaker Tod Lending unprecedented access to a female juvenile prison in order to tell the story of AIMEE'S CROSSING. In this provocative, intimate, and emotionally charged portrait, Lending follows juvenile offender Aimee Myers for four years as she struggles to stay out of incarceration and overcome her addictions. Her distinctive voice, and the multiplicity of issues that her story embodies (mental health, abuse, addiction, family struggles, education, juvenile criminal justice), challenges the viewer to examine and question how the juvenile justice system can best serve young women. Broadcasted nationally on PBS. Written by Tod Lending
