Is blocking low-level offenders from employment truly justice?
Following a conviction for a driving infraction, Gail Bland’s life took a sudden turn for the worse. A married woman with two children, she’d been working in the north-east of England when she came face-to-face with the harsh reality of job-hunting with a criminal record. Told through a touching first-person narrative, this short portrait explores how a quite normal life can be shattered through society’s inability to see people as people once they have been through the criminal justice system.
