    POV [#2901] The Return In 2012, California amended its "Three Strikes" law - one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the country. The passage of Prop 36 marked the first time that citizens voted to shorten sentences of those currently incarcerated. Within days, the reintegration of thousands of "lifers" was underway. This program examines this unprecedented reform through the eyes of those on the front lines - prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, reentry providers helping navigate complex transitions, and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law. At a pivotal moment of reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California's experiment teach the nation? Official Selection of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG-L (Secondary audio: none)
