Last Days of Solitary 1x120

Follow what happens to recently released prisoners when they go from solitary to the streets. With extraordinary access to the Maine State Prison, the film examines the long-term effects of solitary confinement and efforts to reduce its use in the United States. In unprecedented scenes, Last Days of Solitary portrays—almost in real-time—the psychological disintegration of human beings. The film asks fundamental questions: what is the psychological impact of solitary? What effects do offenders carry with them back into the community? And does solitary ultimately make us more or less safe?
