Kids Behind Bars!

Punished like adults but still teenagers. In Kids Behind Bars, we meet some of America’s youngest and most dangerous criminals growing up inside. Indiana’s Wabash Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison, is home to 40 teenagers serving up to 65 years for murder, armed robbery and battery. In the state of Indiana, children as young as ten, charged with serious crimes, can be tried and sentenced within the adult criminal justice system. Childhoods lost, these boys are coming to terms with how one moment of madness has completely devastated their lives. Caught in a system that seems to work against them – what are their hopes for the future?
