Women and men discuss the affects of imprisonment on the spouses and chlldren of those who are serving time.  They examine the embarrassment and shame of being jailed, the loss of contact with children, and the emotional stress of perpetual violence inside the prison.  The questions are raised - can spouse on the outside remain faithful over a long period of time? Should children be brought to visit and make regular calls in order to stay in contact? How can family members be supportive and encouraging? How can society stop the growth of the prison industry as a big business that preys upon the limited financial opportunities of the poor?
