Survivors and perpetrators of violent crime caught in the American criminal justice system struggle to change their lives despite incredible circumstances. When a hard-won death sentence for the man who killed her husband brings brings more pain than relief, Dionne Wilson unexpectedly finds healing inside San Quentin Prison with a group of men convicted of murder, powerfully revealing a movement that transcends our current punitive system by getting to the root cause of violent crime – trauma – and stopping it by healing the individuals and communities involved.
