This is a stark and biting documentary filmed entirely behind bars at a Penitentiary featuring prisoners "telling it like it is" about the realities of losing their freedom at an early age for drug related crimes. In dramatic settings, they relate their individual stories, telling how and why they were locked away, describing drab daily prison routine and inmate struggle, and in so doing impart a strong sense of personal loss and regret. Ultimately this "living testimony" concludes with compelling advice to teenagers not to choose drugs, not to let crack cocaine and other dangerous substances ruin their lives. This program will make your most at-risk students sit up and take notice.
