February 1 at 6pm | Kristal Bush, a Philadelphia social worker who operates a service that drives family members to prisons to visit their incarcerated loved ones, is ambitious and resilient. When her father and brother return home from prison themselves, she is faced with the reality that release doesn’t always mean freedom. This intimate documentary - winner of Best Documentary at the American Black Film Festival - is an honest portrait of one family striving to love in the face of a system built to break them.
