I watched this video not once but twice. this is not your ordinary run of the mill video, it touched me in way that will forever change my views about prison life and its affect on people who are in that environment. Hill Harper was absolutely wonderful in his portrayal of a prison inmate.Rae Dong Chong, Billy Dee Williams,Marla Giggs, and others were great as well. This movie should be seen by not only the general public but by people that are in ministry. It is perhaps the most profound tool that can be used for the purpose of Prison Outreach.I am personally going to purchase this movie to have in my collection.

This movie is a tearjerker,it's about a man who is on deathrow and look over his past and understand what he done wrong and want forgiviness from his family.

The Visit ia a great eye-opener for the American family. This is a story that has to be told; a story that holds up the poster board for ''DYSfuntional family''. However, the weave of Love, Caring and Forgiveness lend to this fine story. Today's society champions men whom have hard exteriors, but forget the real man behind the issues. This story shows the Black American family at their most humbling moments. I think this film should be viewed in schools throughout the US.
