Told through the charismatic voice of inmate Kenneth Reams, the film is about human resilience. In solitary confinement for the last 25 years, Kenneth has pushed back the walls of his cell to become a painter, a poet, the founder of a non-profit, and an art event organizer – while fighting at the same time for justice. At age 18, Kenneth was convicted for capital murder without firing a bullet.
