America is the only developed nation that puts children in prison for life.

Joe Donovan was one of those children.

The Joe Donovan Project A Project of Documentaries

Twenty-three years after Joseph Donovan was given a life-without-parole sentence for murder, the U.S. Supreme Court declares mandatory life-without-parole unconstitutional for juveniles. In this intimate portrait of crime and punishment, Donovan's plight, reflective of more than 2,500 others like him in this country, is revealed, while larger social policy issues are illuminated.

The Joe Donovan Project is a feature length documentary film currently in production.
