Since October 2015, we have been filming a group of formerly incarcerated individuals in New York City as they transition out of prison, including Coss Marte, the founder of the fitness studio ConBody. Coss and the other trainers at the gym are bold examples of men and women who are pushing back against the numerous set-backs and structural impediments to successful re-entry. Unexpectedly Coss' story has received copious coverage in social media and outlets like The New York Times and CNN so the role of social media in re-inventing personal narratives plays a part in this story as well. A substantial amount of our footage chronicles the growth of his business and the ways in which, after his release, he has worked to help other formerly incarcerated individuals. The film also highlights the important role mentors and meaningful programs play in post incarceration growth.
