The forgotten boys
The Forgotten Boys follows the stories of three young men brought together in an English class and a prison debate group in Trinidad. Each journey is heartbreaking but particularly challenging. Restorative justice programmes within the prison tend to be a refuge, providing defendants and inmates with motivation. This film will take you behind and beyond the bars, seeking to humanise an often isolated sector of society. The purpose of this documentary film is to highlight the universal human experience and adversity from a Caribbean perspective.
