3 moms. 4 kids. 18 years in prison.–Since the beginning of theWar on Drugs, the number of women in U.S. prisons has grown over 800%. The majority are mothers.

Their stories overlap at a new reentry program for women, run by Malika, an advocate formerly incarcerated in the same prison. Filmed over three and half three and half years, Apart traces their steps as they reconstruct lives derailed by drugs and prison.
