The answer to crime and violence isn't more police or bigger jails. It's a change of heart in those who commit crime. Former gang members and perpetrators of criminal activities talk about what happened that transformed their lives and how they are now striving to bring enlightenment in order to save others who are still on the path of self destruction. They discuss the challenges of restoring their honor and regaining trust of friends and family.  They describe the process of erasing often painful memories and images of violence from their minds as they seek to bring healing to those they hurt during their period of ignorance. They offer words of inspiration and hope to parents and relatives of sons and daughters who seem unreachable, reminding them that every soul responds to love.
