We take young people on an interactive tour of how easily they can become drawn into gangs, the often life long consequences of a criminal record and a prison term, the range of sentences which are being applied by the courts to take entire gangs off the streets, the impact of Joint Enterprise, a visual tour through a male young offender unit, the prison regime and actual prison clothing, the dangers which accompany imprisonment, the impact of the offender's behaviour, particularly on the family and specifically on the mum before closing with demonstrations of anti crime technology.
