It was love at first sight when Dionne Wilson met her future husband, Dan, in an Oakland gun shop. When Dan, a policeman, is murdered, she wants blood. Brimming with grief and rage, Dionne seeks out media attention, and almost overnight becomes the charismatic darling of the hard-on-crime, pro-death penalty movement. But when a death sentence for her husband's killer brings her more pain instead of relief, Dionne goes searching for answers behind the razor wire of San Quentin. In The Prison Within, a feature documentary, Dionne meets Eddie, 29, and Sane, 40, two men convicted of murder who are part of the innovative Insight Prison Project. Transcendent moments are captured with Eddie and Sane as the men face their unforgivable crimes. They look for meaning in lives that began in poverty and violence, and in futures sure to be warehoused and forgotten. By grieving together in one of the darkest, most desperate places in America, Dionne and the men find hope. "I didn't realize that ... Written by Katherin Hervey
