About Time


A first hand investigation of how a spike in horrific deaths at a women’s prison in California provoked families and advocates to fight for justice against institutional abuse. Through intimate stories of five women, ‘About Time’ examines the stigmas of incarceration and layers of trauma that recycle women of color through the revolving doors of the criminal justice system.
