Film Summary:

Through interviews with young people inside and outside the criminal justice system, the Youth Art and Self-empowerment Project confronts Act 33, a law allowing youth to be tried and incarcerated as adults.  Their video, Stolen Dreams, explores the impact this practice has on young people, their families and our communities.
