According to the filmmakers, the film envisions alternatives to prison through the eyes of women behind bars and those fighting on the front lines of the decarceration movement.

The three filmmakers collaborated with incarcerated women to question the issues facing the rising rates of women’s incarceration. Together they envision a more ideal world, authoring their own narratives through art. They join advocates and politicians in a worldwide movement questioning the ideas of punishment and prison.
