Three prisoners go back to their communities on 48 hours leave in this moving and thought provoking drama 

Three long term inmates are coming to the end of their prison sentences.  As part of their parole, they are each given a 48 hour pass to go back to their communities.  All are advised to spend it with family.  Wise words, but what if the families are not happy to see you after all this time?  Or the lure of the criminal world is too seductive?
