Breaking Down the Box exposes the torture of solitary confinement in the context of mass incarceration in the United States. The film examines the mental health, racial justice and human rights implications of the systemic use of solitary confinement. It is a call to action for communities of faith to engage in the growing nationwide movement for restorative alternatives to isolated confinement that prioritize rehabilitation, therapeutic interventions, and recovery.
