Summary note:
An examination of the prison and its place -- social, economic and psychological -- in American society. Excavates the often-unseen links and connections that prisons and our system of mass incarceration have on communities and industries all around us-- from a blazing California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires to a Bronx warehouse that specializes in prison-approved care packages to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of new prison jobs to the street where Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson. Includes interviews with ex-convicts, prisoners and people who live near prisons.
