Synopsis:

Ten recently released ex-convicts receive a chance at a new beginning. Living together over several weeks, they are guided through a program to assist them in adapting to life as a law-abiding citizen. Lead by a host who successfully overcame his criminal past, and guided by psychologists, tutors, life and fitness coaches, they are given the skills necessary to adjust. Those who show the most dedication will complete the course and win prizes such as full dental service, a car, and a vacation. Those who falter will be eliminated, but still receive jobs and legal assistance in hopes of continuing their transformation. The result is a powerful and emotional journey.
