    Examines the problem of illiteracy among America's prison population by portraying a peer-tutoring program in which long-term, educated inmates fill teaching positions left vacant due to budget cuts. Filmed in both men's and women's facilities, the inmates discuss the social and racial dynamics of prison life, the choice between violence and education to achieve goals, and the educational potential of the penal system.
