This feature documentary does not show the prison itself, but instead reveals the people and places affected by it. From a business in the Bronx that helps loved ones navigate the labyrinthine rules and regulations surrounding care packages, to a chess park where the bets have a high stake for those unable to find work post-incarceration, to the gentrification of urban Detroit, The Prison in Twelve Landscapes sheds a light on the prison in our midst.
