In a tough American prison, a former inmate returns to teach meditation

In the harsh environment of a Rhode Island men’s prison, fifty inmates are transforming their lives through the practice of mindfulness meditation. The program is the work of former inmate Fleet Maull, who visits with convicted felons to share his strategies for surviving on the inside. This film offers a rare glimpse into the inner lives of men who are reaching for peace and forgiveness, and some form of freedom behind bars.
