This episode presents a documentary about the personal relationship between a parole officer and a paroled convict. Joseph McCormick has worked most of his life in the Massachusetts Dept. of Corrections as a prison social worker and parole officer. John Hackett (this is not the person's real name) first got into trouble when he was nine-years-old and was just paroled after serving seven years for armed robbery. McCormick thinks he is an intelligent and likeable person, for whom there seems hope of rehabilitation. After nearly a year, Hackett commits another crime and is caught. They meet with a sense of emotional crisis.
