Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian

Beyond the Wall is riveting, gritty, powerful and provocative, but it is not a film – it is real life. It shows us the all too real visceral desperation of those trying to battle addiction and overcome the hurdles created by a period of incarceration. It also reveals the hope that lies in the action and commitment of men like Louis Diaz and Billy Cabrera, who have overcome those same hurdles and now dedicate their lives to offering support to those that society would often just as soon forget.
