Summary
Hardy, a former parole officer, shines a bright light on a huge yet hidden part of our justice system: life on parole. Through the intertwining stories of seven parolees striving to survive the chaos that awaits them after prison, he stokes our outrage at the status quo and our hope that better approaches are within out grasp. -- adapted from jacket
