How to Prepare for Prison
Fuelled by fear, regret, defiance and redemption, this intimate documentary follows the stories of three people facing prison for the first time. Shot over three years, the film goes behind the scenes and into the offices of lawyers and judges, and into the homes of ordinary citizens caught in the crosshairs of the law. It captures their growing psychological distress as they await judgment.
