Synopsis

This film looks at the lives of five individuals in Colorado who were sentenced to life without parole as juveniles. In the late 1980s and 1990s Colorado changed their laws to favor punishment over rehabilitation. They removed the possibility for parole for life sentences and made it easier for the district attorney's office to treat juveniles as adults. This film looks at the consequences of those actions in the lives of these five individuals.
