LOCKED IN A BOX is the award winning 25-minute documentary tracing the lives of individuals who fled their homes in search of safety and freedom only to end up in U.S. prisons and for-profit detention centers. The recent joint presentation by the Immigrant and Refugee Support, Adult Education and Social Justice Committees at SPC was very well received. There was overwhelming support to share this film with greater Shepherdstown.
