I love a good documentary. I’m interested in all types of topics for documentaries, especially if they help me learn about people and ways of life that I’m not familiar with.
I was recently given the opportunity to preview Jonathon’s Walk, a documentary about one man’s journey from the walls of prison back home to his wife and family.
About Jonathon’s Walk
Jonathon was only 18 when he went to prison for a carjacking. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison. During his time in prison, he met and married his wife and became a father to his wife’s daughter. When the documentary opens, he is set to be released from prison, though the odds are stacked against him.
According to the documentary, “Though America is home to only 4 percent of the world’s population, we house more than 21 percent of its prisoners. Recidivism–the tendency of a criminal to reoffend—is out of control.”
Yet, Jonathon may have a better chance than most because he’s gone through a special program, the Prison Fellowship Academy, designed to help combat the return to prison that is all too common.
