After corrupt L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca is ousted, Patrisse Cullors and a group of community organizers work to shut down a new jail the county is trying to build. This docuseries takes us behind the scenes of their powerful grassroots activism in action, examining the issues of cash bail, unlawful arrest, over-policing of black and brown neighborhoods, and mass incarceration. As the community and student activists band together to attack legislation targeting each concern, families and loved ones fight for the freedom of the imprisoned.
