A look at the stunning cost of recidivism in Tennessee, and its devastating affect on families and communities, where more than 50 percent of offenders return to jail or prison within three years. But there are some programs that are making a difference to these “outcasts.” The film segues to the deep corruption in the entire U.S. prison system – which nowadays is nothing short of big business.
