About the film:
After spending years separated from society, how would it feel to return home to a place that you no longer know? Each year over half a million people in the U.S. are released from prisons and jails. They have served their time, but the shadow of their past convictions continues to follow them. Released to Life focuses on several recently released individuals in their struggle to redefine themselves and offers a view into the unique challenges they face.
