"What are the limits of your capacity to forgive? It's something a remarkable B.C. woman spent years considering before she made one of the most difficult decisions imaginable. Debbie Warsing not only makes peace with her stepson years after he tortured her and murdered her two small children, she even supports his bid for freedom. As Duncan McCue reports, this transformation is a testament to the profound healing possible through the restorative justice process"--Container.

This documentary looks at a very unusual prison. And at a fascinating model for rehabilitating prisoners - a collaboration between the Chehalis Nation of British Columbia and Correctional Service of Canada. Filmed over the course of two years at Kwìkwèxwelhp (formerly Elbow Lake Correctional Facility), the film examines a different way to look at the concepts underlying punishment and rehabilitation and the idea that the current prison system can be significantly changed by including community in the process.
