This one-hour documentary chronicles the lives in America's most incarcerated zip code, with 62% of adult males having spent time in a state correctional facility.  Beverly Walker’s husband, Baron, has been incarcerated for 21 years for two ‘party-to-a-crime’ armed robberies where nobody was hurt.  Caught between changing parole laws in Wisconsin, he should have been released years ago, but remains in prison while Ms. Walker continues efforts toward his release.    She and director Keith McQuirter will be participate in Q &A with the audience after the screening and responses from a panel of community members.  Director/Producer Keith McQuirter is an award-winning producer and director with credits in TV documentary, new media and commercials. He co-produced the first season of the five-part Peabody Award winning and Prime Time Emmy nominated docu-series Brick City for the Sundance Channel.
