Movie Info

Fox Rich is a fighter. The entrepreneur, abolitionist and mother of six boys has spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband, Rob G. Rich, who is serving a 60-year sentence for a robbery they both committed in the early 90s in a moment of desperation. Combining the video diaries Fox has recorded for Rob over the years with intimate glimpses of her present-day life, director Garrett Bradley paints a mesmerizing portrait of the resilience and radical love necessary to prevail over the endless separations of the country's prison-industrial complex.

It's a dazzling, prismatic meditation on the nature of time itself, [...] a reflection on the life that grows and blooms even as we wait impatiently for years to pass.

This is a beautifully shot film that's as interested in studying the changing faces of its subjects as laying out their struggle from end to end.

An intimate exploration of time unjustly stolen by a justice system that never seems to deliver what it promises.

A gripping documentary that reframes the perception of mass incarceration and its far-reaching effects.

It allows us to see Fox and her family through their own eyes while giving the film the scope of an epic-one made up of fragments and focused, like all epics, on the promise of catharsis in a homecoming.

[Director Garrett] Bradley's mastering of craft is evident in all the ways she strays from convention.
