Conviction

Show Summary

Conviction focuses on the true stories of different prisoners trying to come to terms with their crimes. It uses unaired footage from Lockup, one of MSNBC's documentaries, and shows how therapy can help inmates understand the events leading up to their incarceration. One episode, The Last Living Face, features a prisoner serving time for murder. John Robb must describe to his therapy group what drove him to commit violence. He explains that he was encouraged by an associate to break into a home and steal valuables from a safe. Although he initially refused to do it, the man threatened Robb's pregnant sister, and he felt like he had no other option. The decision to enter the home set into motion a series of events that led to the murder. Through stories like that of John Robb, Conviction shows how group therapy can be a catalyst for understanding and acceptance among prisoners.
