Although youth violence in inner cities in the US is declining, incarceration rates and prison terms are only getting higher and longer. Rodriguez, a former inmate himself, spent two years following youth caught up in the juvenile justice system, some on probation or house arrest, some struggling to find a job or complete their education, and others presently incarcerated. He also documented people who work in the juvenile justice system to see how these youth, faced with fewer and fewer second chances, struggle to change their lives. Illustrated with 100 b/w photos.
