MONDAY 10/25, 4:40 PM (SESSION 10)

Director: NC Heikin
Producers:
Nicole London, Jessica Wolfson, Marcia Jarmel

Description:
A journey that musician Reggie Austin takes to redeem his life following a murder conviction 40 years ago. With surprising honesty and depth, the film looks at Austin’s effect on his fellow inmates and efforts to reconnect with his family questioning parole and sentencing practices through his story. Ultimately, the film reveals the steep and dangerous hill ex-prisoners must climb upon release to free themselves and create a positive future. It is a story of the struggle for redemption and hope against near impossible odds, accompanied by a soundtrack that comes straight from Austin’s heart.
