"This Side of Freedom: Life After Clemency" is a riveting, compelling tale about the post-conviction life of activist and artist Anthony Papa. He tells firsthand of his experience of being granted executive clemency and returning home after serving 12 years of a 15-to-life sentence for a non-violent drug crime. Papa struggles with his freedom while fighting to free those he left behind. He goes through heart-wrenching trials and tribulations as he seeks to end the war on drugs. Along the way he meets an array of individuals from famous movie stars to politicians and the very rich, hoping to enlist their help in doing away with mass incarceration and draconian sentencing laws that have destroyed America's criminal justice system.
