An acclaimed musician leads a transformative program in a Virginia jail.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Grammy-winning hip hop artist Todd Thomas – better known as “Speech” of the iconic group Arrested Development – leads a unique collaborative music workshop in the Richmond City Jail in Virginia. Striving to overcome their demons, four past and present inmates work side-by-side with Speech to transform their experiences, hopes, and fears into songs. Exploring cycles of addiction and incarceration through the power of music and storytelling, Samuel Bathrick’s inspiring film offers a window into rehabilitation.
