Just Released! For over 4 years the filmmaker has been visiting an art class at the Dallas County Jail and talking to women who are incarcerated. The film shows how this art class has built many women’s self-confidence, allowed them to reflect on their past and given them hope to take the next step to plan for their future. Using the shoe as their life’s metaphor helped the women tell their stories.
