This film takes a powerful and in-depth look at a California theater company called Poetic Justice Project, which is comprised of formerly incarcerated writers, artists, musicians, and actors who perform original plays that examine the topics of crime, punishment, and redemption. Begun in 2009 by Deborah Tobola, former managing Director of Arts in Corrections at a California state prison, Poetic Justice project provides a powerful opportunity for formerly incarcerated individuals to find their way back into society through the arts, and offers greater understanding and information about prison life to the general public.
