It's almost like for three hours we weren't in prison… reflects one of the inmates appearing in an Oregon prison-sponsored performance of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The theater-making process brings out the participant's stories of pain and regret, compassion and hope. The film captures the men as they experience the transformative power of the Arts to challenge and heal.
