Inside Peace is a feature documentary that focuses on four men incarcerated in a Texas jail, who embark on a journey of self-discovery. With lives marked by generations of violence, addiction and poor social conditions, they attend a peace class and begin to discover their humanity and rebuild their lives from the inside out. Inside Peace is a window into the hearts and minds of these men, who chose to break a life-long cycle of negativity. When released from jail, they face a world filled with conflict, rejection and hostility. If they can change the only belief system they have ever known and succeed in understanding their value as a human being, they might have a chance at living better lives.

“These stories bleed through Inside Peace, and they are crucial to it, but they’re only part of what the film is about. The men manage to take the message to heart that they have value as people – no simple lesson, especially when it comes so late in life. This is where, for the viewer, the awe comes in. You mean inner peace is… always possible?” – Robert Koehler
