Description
Post-screening discussion with the Minnesota Sex Offender Re-entry Project following the April 21 screening.

In St. Petersburg, Florida there is a trailer park that 120 convicted sex offenders call home. The Florida Justice Transitions, otherwise known as “Pervert Park,” was founded by a mother of a convicted sex offender who couldn't find a place to live after his release.

Frida and Lasse Barkfors’ unflinching new film is about the people no one wants as a neighbor. It follows the every day life of the sex offenders as they struggle to reintegrate into society and gives us a chance to understand who they are and how the destructive cycle of sexual abuse can be broken.
