ACSO’s film premiere

A Second Chance follows Peter’s efforts to beat alcohol addiction, Nicole’s battle with illicit drug use and Joanne’s search for redemption of her offences against her children as we see into their journey through the justice system and beyond. All three have committed an offence and their lives have been impacted by their circumstance.

Upcoming director Clara Simpson examines the work of ACSO exploring the human struggles of their clients. The documentary explores the theme that punishment is a necessary part of the justice system and looks through a lens of interventions that can break the cycle of crime.

“Providing offenders with a second chance to reintegrate into society can actively reduce crime and make a safer community for all.”
