Meanwhile, INNOCENT Black Men Deserve Justice!
Verified purchase
I'm struggling to write this review, as I am well aware of how unjust this country's justice system is for Black people. However, unlike the majority of the reviewers here, I have little empathy for those who decide to commit a crime to save their business/get out of debt, then cry "woe-is-me" when they're dealt with by our justice system.

In fact, it was mentioned the wife was smart-enough to take the plea-deal; the husband stood-trial, blatantly guilty, and recieved a sentence 5 times longer than his wife. According to a comment the wife's mother made, he could have taken the same deal as his wife. If that was the case, going to trial, in Louisiana, BLATANTLY GUILTY of a planned crime, and thinking he'd get a better outcome, was just foolish.

After seeing the trailer I was under the impression perhaps her husband was wrongfully convicted and she was seeking justice... this is far from what happened. It makes sense to me why the wife's mother appeared unbothered/indifferent during this documentary.

At any rate, I'm an advocate of Black love and keeping the Black family together, and I'm happy they were able to reunite.

Nobody is a "victim" here.

The is what's wrong with America. You call yourself a victim when you perform an armed robbery. Are you kidding me? My Aunt was shot dead during an armed robbery. You do the crime, serve the time. She didn't get 60 years, her life ended. I loathe people like this.

Maybe instead of whining about her husband being in prison for 20 years she should take responsibility for robbing a bank! And where did her youngest son come from if her husband was in prison??

Emotional, yet lacking in many ways
Verified purchase
I guess my high expectations have let me down somewhat. What I expected -- and hoped -- to watch was a documentary chronicling the steps and measures Fox Rich took in her fight to get her husband released from prison.

This movie doesn't show any of that.

There is not a shred of information about why he was released early, or what his dedicated wife did specifically to help. We're not learning anything about the proceedings. We're also not learning much about the family; out of the six children, only Justus and Freedom are featured at all, and with their admirable apparent success in life, I longed to learn about their upbringing, about how their mother of six had not only been fighting for her husbands release from prison and building a career had also managed to raise her beautiful children while also being away in prison for several years.

What we *do* get to see is a beautifully filmed glimpse at a family that is obviously loving, supportive, caring, devoted to their faith, and that's heartwarming to witness, but there isn't much "meat" (for lack of better term) that tells the actual story.

Why were they upset, when they did the crim
Verified purchase
So I 'm so confused if they rob the bank they deserve the time. I'm not understanding why they wanted special treatment just asking a question? I think I must have missed something.

Heartbreaking and Uplifting
Verified purchase
This is a rare piece of cinema that takes you through the trials and tribulations of one family's fight for reunion despite the hardships of the impact of mass incarceration. It is a celebration of love and the resilience of marginalized communities. It is a celebration of love and the resilience of Black people. It is an exploration of social inequality without ever ignoring the real human stories behind the issues. Bravo!

I Think this was an wonderful document of a women keeping her family together while fighting to get her husband freed. I cried and laughed with her and her family as I watched.
The only thing about TIME is that I which it gave the Years MM/YR.

The above is the best way to explain this documentary. It's hard to watch in that it hurts so bad. But these kinds of stories are necessary to share. People make mistakes but often the punishment our country bestows upon Black folks does not fit the crime. It's painful and real. Beautifully done, God bless this family.
