In a country leading the world in incarcerating women, meet three mothers fighting to rebuild their lives.

Masks are required to attend this live event in Library Hall.

This intimate portrait examines the impact of America’s war on drugs through three mothers attempting to rebuild lives derailed by drugs and prison. As Tomika, Lydia, and Amanda prepare to rejoin their families after years of incarceration, they enter an innovative prison program in Cleveland, Ohio where they lean on each other and mentors who have also been in prison. With the hope of redemption on the horizon, the women work to regain the trust of their children and combat stigmas associated with people who have been incarcerated.

A film by Jennifer Redfearn (Director/Producer) and Tim Metzger
