Storyline

One hundred and fifty years after the abolition of slavery, private prison companies like Correctional Corporation of America (CCA), GEO Group, and Avalon Correctional Services continue to profit from an all-out assault on the poor and people of color, capitalizing on political connections to turn millions of inmates into modern day slaves. Utilizing investigative journalism techniques, compelling interviews, and a filmic approach, Voices in a Jailhouse chronicles the often heartbreaking stories of victims and follows dedicated activists in their quest to reform America's broken prison system. The film's stories serve as compelling examples of the failed War on Drugs, biased law enforcement, and excessive sentencing, and illustrate how private prisons create cruel, unsafe conditions while costing taxpayers billions of dollars.
