Set inside a single room in Folsom Prison, three men from the outside participate in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts. Over the four days, each man in the room takes his turn at delving deep into his past.

This poignant documentary centered around the inmates’ first hand tales on violence, neglect and toxic masculinity to reveal the underlying issues that many men in society phase today.

Read this interesting article on how the director Jairus McLeary was able to gain the trust of the inmates to allow cameras in the room:
