Arthur, an 80-year-old man, is a peer mentor for individuals coming out of jail, applying the technique that eventually helped him avoid recidivism, the tendency to re-offend. He has spent 40 years in the criminal justice system for non-violent drug crimes; a repeat offender due to his untreated addiction; with a generational impact on his family. At its core, this film forces the audience to consider: when do we determine justice has been served?

Through the lens of Arthur’s journey, his defense attorney, and his current boss, the film aims to raise awareness of the issue of mass incarceration, the value of peer mentorship, the importance of addressing the root cause rather than the crime, the resilience of an African American family, and mass incarceration’s lasting effects on society, and the people affected by it.
