Every month in Canada, hundreds of detainees gain their freedom after serving their sentences. What happens to these detainees once released? And what freedom do they find on the other side of the bars? From prisons to prisons documents the life of different ex-cons who are trying to reintegrate society. From the small recidivist thief, to the drug dealer, to the person who committed homicide, this documentary provides an opportunity for different ex-cons to speak about their precarious day-to-day, their uncertain future and troubled past. Straight forward, without artifice, complacency or voyeurism, the film reflects this fragile moment when the hope of a new beginning can turn to the best or the worst.
