"A Sentence Apart is a powerful film about the effects of incarceration on family members. Each heart-wrenching story demonstrates the resolve of those on the outside. Cheyanne confronts her father about his self-centered actions that have denied all his children a dad present in their lives. Linda takes an over-night bus to visit her daughter every two weeks and is broken-hearted to see her child in shackles. After years of hiding her father’s incarceration, Tanea is now open about his whereabouts. Whether daughter or mother, each is suffering deeply from circumstances beyond their control. This film will stimulate interest in the un-intended victims of incarceration."

A Sentence Apart is a powerful film about the effects of incarceration on family members.  Each heart-wrenching story demonstrates the resolve of those on the outside. Cheyanne confronts her father about his self-centered actions that have denied all his children a dad present in their lives. Linda takes an over-night bus to visit her daughter every two weeks and is broken-hearted to see her child in shackles. After years of hiding her father’s incarceration, Tanea is now open about his whereabouts.  Whether daughter or mother, each is suffering deeply from circumstances beyond their control.  This film will stimulate interest in the un-intended victims of incarceration.”
