A new short film by Wide Angle Youth Media introduces us to the Ungers - geriatric lifers released under the 2012 Maryland Court of Appeals ruling, Unger v. Maryland. This examines the issues of long term sentences, geriatric parole and what it means to be a part of this unique case study in geriatric reentry. The film also interviews key reform experts including JPI's State Based Strategist, Keith Wallington.
