A powerful and thought-provoking look inside our criminal justice system from an exciting new voice.

 

Frankie is in jail for serious offences - assault and drug possession. She’s bitter, disenfranchised and just wants to live life on her terms. But jail is a temporary escape for her – free from financial hardship, homelessness, and hunger. 'Cracked' is the story of Frankie as she rages her way through the criminal justice system trying to receive parole, with the hope of being reunited with her kids. Weaving several narratives, 'Cracked' shows the complexity and disconnectedness of people that fall into a life of crime, and the trials faced by prisoners and others who are determined to help them find a better life
