“100 Days of Freedom”
Saturday, November 25th at 7 p.m. ET/PT (60 mins.)

100 Days of Freedom follows the trials and tribulations of three criminal offenders attempting to make positive changes in their lives after being released from prison. We meet David, a former cocaine addict who fuelled his addiction with a string of robberies; Gloria, a former prostitute and drug addict convicted of a violent gang-on-gang home invasion; and Wayne, also convicted of a violent home invasion who has only seen three years of freedom in the last 30 years. Directed by Antonio Hrynchuk and produced by Lori Kuffner, the film gives viewers a taste of what life is like in a medium-security prison and the struggles these former inmates face as they try to reintegrate into society with limited job skills and little or no family support.
