Inside Peace

Inmates doing hard time in a Texas jail enroll in a Peace Class and struggle to discover their humanity and beat the odds as they put their lives back together from the inside out. Over the course of fours years, we follow three men who gradually begin to change the way they see themselves and their place in the world. Their road becomes even more treacherous when they leave prison and face a world that doesn’t always say “Welcome home.”
