Beyond Punishment / Film / USA


Leola and Lisa live in the Bronx near the supermarket where their sixteen year old son and brother was shot without warning. Mother and daughter have been waiting eleven years for Sean - twenty one at the time of the murder and sentenced to forty years in prison for that crime - to admit his guilt.

Trying to deal with the loss and to find answers for the seemingly inexpressible led them both to a prison in Wisconsin. By talking to others convicted of murder, they hope to make what happened more tangible and, by hearing the words and explanations of their unknown counterparts, be able to learn to deal with the pain.
