“It’s a black hole. Dark. Cold”

“When we are inside we get enough time to think of the things we’ve done, how we want to change our lives. To find the real you….I found the purpose of my life though correctional service.

South African society is multi-cultured and filled with many different mindsets but if there is one thing we can all agree upon: prison is the last place we want to end up. It is surprising that among these convicted criminals, inspiration can be found. From fraud, robbery and theft, 7 convicts talk about what it’s like to live behind bars, what it takes to be rehabilitated back into society and the blessing in disguise that prison has been for some of them.
