The United States has approximately 2.5 million people in prisons across the country – more than any other country in the world. The first 90 days of being released are crucial for those who have been incarcerated – as they often face many challenges and few resources – and nearly 40 per cent of released convicted felons re-offend within the first six months. Driven by intimate, first-person narratives and through a diary-like lens, Released presents autobiographical portraits of formerly incarcerated men and women as they walk out of the prison doors for the first time and attempt to reconnect with their loved ones, establish their independence and begin the long, hard work of resurrecting their abandoned lives.
