"Returning Citizens" focuses on a passionate group of individuals who are looking for a second chance - or perhaps a chance they never had to begin with. Taking place in Southeast Washington, DC, the film offers a humanizing perspective on a community that has been negatively impacted by mass incarceration. From freshly returning individuals struggling to rebuild their lives, to community leaders working to end the on-going cycle of crime and violence, the stories unveiled in "Returning Citizens" offer proof that change is possible when the right opportunities are presented.

Saffron Cassaday and his cast have rejuvenated a struggling and boring cinema, they have resurrected the almost dying art of epic film-making.

Wow! Is the only phrase I can think of when trying to describe this film in a one word summary! Saffron Cassaday definitely did a great job!

When you are using real actors and not "reheated" stars alongside silly semi-amateurs, plus a script that does not self plagiarize, any movie can only be good and very good!

A Return to Chocolate City is nothing like your average Hollywood movie. It is really something you should see for yourself.
