About:
After being released from the same prison in which her mother is incarcerated, a woman struggles to break the generational cycle of addiction and trauma.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
This profoundly moving family portrait explores the cyclical nature of addiction and generational trauma. Jessica Earnshaw’s film opens as Jacinta is incarcerated alongside her mother, Rosemary. After the younger woman is released from jail, she attempts to reconnect with her daughter, Caylynn. As she fights to remain sober amid the pressures of post-correctional life, Jacinta finds herself in a daily battle with temptation. This insightful and ultimately hopeful documentary provides unparalleled access to the devastation wrought by addiction.
