I found the most moving thing about the film to be the fellowship that can exist even among our most wretched. More money should be going into counselling than the prison system, especially knowing that such a significant portion of sex offenders were abused themselves. A quiet and sober documentary that manages compassion without apologism. Tracy Hutchinson's story broke my heart.
Does a good job providing an opportunity to show the victim side to being an sex offender. It reminds us that no human wants to commit horrible acts out of sheer wilfullness, but virtually always they've suffered a traumatic history or are mentally ill. Ultimately, they deserve to be considered human beings, receiving grace, all the while of course having to face the consequences of their actions.
