Over half of ex-cons who are released from prison will commit another crime and return within three years. Road to Return, narrated by Tim Robbins, is the story of a black ex-bank robber and a white college professor who unite to create the nation’s leading aftercare program, helping ex-cons return not to crime but to society as productive citizens. Road to Return compellingly examines a compassionate alternative to “lock em up and throw away the key.”
Road to Return has received great reviews in The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, The Times-Picayune and other papers. The film also created a groundswell throughout the country for prison aftercare and rehabilitation. The film screened for Congress, resulting in a bill that funded the aftercare program in 6 other states; a program, which brought recidivism down from an average of 85% to 5% amongst its graduates.
