Offenders. Shawn and Sandra have a little gate cash, an overworked case officer, and the weight of their turbulent pasts. The system says their debt is paid, but the eyes of a daughter, of former friends, of passersby, say the ledger is still in the red.

nimbus' Mitchell Frazier and Josh Cragun examine the stories of two Twin Cities lives facing the uphill battle of reentry. Of hopes buffeted by written and unwritten rules, haunting memories and rooted resentments, mistakes that continue to ripple outward even after years locked away from society. When the system, the stigmas, and even the good intentions of others conspire to hold them back, what will these "offenders" do to restore their self worth, renew relationships, and find forgiveness in a landscape of fear, mistrust and doubt?
