Crime And Punishment, takes a look at New Zealand's increasing use of prison as a response to crime through interviews with ex-prisoners; people working with them; and people working to keep young people out of the prison system. Director John Bates says the underlying question for Crime And Punishment is a simple one: do prison's work? But the answer is more complex, and with high recidivism featuring in jurisdictions around the world, it has become apparent that imprisonment is a very limited tool in the fight against crime.
Alice, an unpretentious and individual 19-year-old, is betrothed to a dunce of an English nobleman. At her engagement party, she escapes the crowd to consider whether to go through with the marriage and falls down a hole in the garden after spotting an unusual rabbit.
