Former author, Paul Freeman (Golden Globe-nominee Matthew Modine, What the Deaf Man Heard) now teaches creative writing at a local prison. One student who stands out is Charles (Emmy-nominee Obba Babatunde, The Temptations), a convicted murderer who, after twenty-four years behind bars, has proven himself a model prisoner. Through his cathartic writing, Paul discovers what brought the man to this hopeless moment in life. A member of the Black Panthers at the age of nineteen, Charles was convicted of murder when his partner shot the inhabitant of a drug den. Sentenced to life in prison for abetting in a homicide, Charles now wants out. He needs to prove his worth as a model citizen. He needs to become a father to a son he’s never met.
