This Emmy-winning work, a sequel to the award-winning One Year in a Life of Crime, probes the devastating cycle of urban unemployment, crime, drugs, and incarceration. It follows two men and one woman from the time they are released from prison onto the streets of Newark, NJ with no job skills and no legal source of income. The program charts their slide back into shoplifting and shooting up, the deterioration of their own lives and the damage they inflict on their children. It exposes the brutal reality of crime and drug addiction while also contesting stereotypical explanations and mythic solutions.
