Good educational video for those working with prison populations.
1 June 2007 | by docluckSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be very useful and educational for people who work with inmates inside correctional settings. I'm a clinical director in a men's prison of approximately 750 inmates, and these issues are a fact of life for these men. I think that this film helps those working in a correctional facilities to understand on another level just how deep this problem is, and to also see how inmates are manipulated, abused, and how they use sex as just another form of currency. We regularly hear stories in our meetings about sexual contact between inmates (most of it consensual at our facility), but this film takes it to another level where it shows the human side and some of the more devastating aspects of what these people often feel forced to choose between just to survive.

Although I've worked in corrections for 14 years, I remember saying to myself after watching this "God, please don't ever let me be incarcerated." It paints a frightening picture of life behind bars just the way we'd envision it in our worst dreams. I also work with juveniles in the juvenile corrections system, and am showing this video to my teenage boys I work with to let them see what they may encounter if they don't change ways now. A very good work about what it's really like away from the "free world."
