As California forest fires rage across the state, over 3,000 professional firefighters and 3,000 volunteer inmates battle the fires for many months on end, sometimes into the winter. Without incarcerated firefighters, California would not be able to manage the growing intensity of fire season. The employment of inmate firefighters-- and the opportunities and challenges that await them upon their release from prison-- are at the heart of Fireboys.

All It Takes
With the ever-growing prescription and use of opiate pain medication, heroin addiction has spread across traditional barriers of class, race, gender, and age and become common in all segments of society. Yet while the path to addiction is distressingly easy, the way out is unimaginably difficult. ALL IT TAKES explores the opiate epidemic in Lorain County from the point of view of addicts and through the efforts of those who work to help these addicts recover their lives and their dignity.
