The U.S.A. imprisons more people, per capita, than any country in the world. Behind 2.4 million prisoners lies an infinite ripple effect of incarceration on the family and community. A Sentence Apart follows three stories of people coping with a family member in prison, attempting to bridge broken relationships, and diligently working to reverse the generational cycle of incarceration. Tenea is a high school senior whose father has been in and out of jail for her entire life, while Linda Williams makes a 20-hour bus trip to visit her youngest daughter, who is serving a 68 year sentence. Cheyanne is 16 years old and can remember only one birthday that her dad attended. Soon after her father gets out of jail, Cheyanne confronts him about the emotional toll incarceration has taken on her. These intimate and moving stories start to scratch the surface of the complex toll incarceration takes on the world outside of the prison walls.
