When Texas gets smart-on-crime. This powerful film odyssey across MidWest explores the mentality change in the Texas justice system from tough-on-crime solutions to the latest smart-on-crime programs that offer second chance to the criminals. Prison, violence, denial are no longer required to deal with modern-day Bonnie and Clyde. Back in the 1930s, the famous outlaws had no chance to meet with such a justice system. On the contrary, Clyde Barrow who started as a petty thief, suffered from harassment and rape within the Texas justice system, before he hurt or killed anyone. No wonder these methods did not help him to get a second chance and find a fresh start in the society of the 30s hit by the Great Depression. Chasing Bonnie & Clyde’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries follow former and current criminals on their personal journey to get a second chance and give unprecedented promises to developed countries which are facing overcrowded prisons, high rates of recidivism, rising juvenile delinquency and a new era of Great Depression... For if it can be done in Texas given the history it can be done anywhere else...
