Film Description:
"The Seventh Step Society in British Columbia is an organization of ex-convicts, convicts and 'straight' people, whose aim is to help men and women stay out of prison after release. Help takes various forms, but foremost is the rap session, a sort of free-wheeling group psychotherapy aimed at airing all the resentments, beefs, and hang-ups that might stand in the way of readjustment to the outside. This film shows all aspects of this approach."
