Canadian Premiere
Dir. Olivier Lambert, Dir. Thomas Salva, France
*Nominated for Best Foreign Film, Best Documentary Feature, Best French Film, Best Editing

Synopsis: When Texas Gets Smart-on-Crime! In this era of Great Recession, the conservative and tough-on-crime State of Texas takes an unexpected, unprecedented path by becoming a social justice leader with programs that rehabilitate young offenders. Rape, abuse and death are no longer in the cards for modern-day prisoners, especially those that idolized Bonnie and Clyde – who lived or died trying to make a name for themselves through crimes of robbery and murder.  Today’s young offenders, thanks to some Texan prison reform innovators, now have a second chance.
