THANK YOU to all who donated to our Kickstarter campaign for this project. 

With America incarcerating more of its youth than any other country in the world, this project explores the real impact of America’s juvenile justice system through the story of 16 year old Blake Layman and the Elkhart Four who were convicted of Felony Murder and sentenced to 55 years in prison in Indiana.

Featuring some of the leading experts in this field, this film goes beyond a polemic of the juvenile justice system, documenting the multi-dimensional aspects of this story.  Shedding light on this bizarre use of the Felony Murder Law and exposing the daily struggles as well as financial and emotional burden of having a loved one incarcerated.


In the final stages of production so please continue to watch this space.
