The short film charts the story of one man, Josh, during his first year of release from prison. It focuses on the relationship he develops with his volunteer mentor, Jody, and shows the fragility of desistance by showing the struggles Josh faces as he tries to go straight. It confronts us with the following questions: what might be the best response a probation officer could take when a prolific offender fails a drugs test? What is the value of having someone 'unofficial' who ex-prisoners can be honest with about their struggles? Can trusting someone through their failures be part of supporting success?
