Where do people go when they get out of prison? How do they adjust to society?
After Orange documents the stories of women getting out of prison and follows their transition back into “normal life”. Many people in America know someone or have a loved one in prison.
This project is extremely personal to the creator of After Orange, Cassandra Hein. Her sister Jamie has been incarcerated for the past 8 years. The adjustments, the struggles, the courtrooms...all of these circumstances have inspired Cassandra to tell the stories that can't tell themselves.
