Season 30 Episode 21 | 8m 8s
Once a year on Mother's Day, a charity bus service takes children to visit their mothers in prison across California. Many of these children are unable to regularly visit their incarcerated parents because remote, rural prisons are often difficult to access for low-income families. Through this bus journey, Mother's Day explores the impact of mass incarceration on an entire generation of youth.
