A hybrid animated / live-action documentary that explores the past, present and future of Peacemaking Circles, and how this restorative justice practice has been reimagined to keep youth out of prison. The film tracks the parallel stories of a troubled teen facing serious jail time, and the former Cambodian gang leader serving as his mentor.

In Seattle, Washington, the county government pilots a paradigm-shifting restorative justice program with the goal of keeping youths out of prison, bringing healing to disenfranchised families and communities, and reforming our dysfunctional justice system. With animation, the film tracks a Mexican-American youth facing four felony charges as he struggles through the program, shepherded by a former Cambodian gang leader. With live-action, the film flashes back to the Indigenous origins of peacemaking circles in the Yukon and tracks the winding trajectory that saw the practice grow from the local context into the International community.
