Just one shot, and Ray became a KILLER!

Provoked by his gang leader into shooting an innocent guy, Ray now faces a forty-year sentence in Chicago's infamous prison system. As far as he is concerned, it might as well be for life.

In prison, he finds his gangbanger ties difficult to escape and even necessary for survival. Just when he's resigned himself to this new existence, Ray receives an unexpected gift--forgiveness. Even as he learns that the source of this forgiveness is God, Ray struggles with accepting it. And then the ultimate test comes: When faced with the man who ruined his life, can Ray extend that same forgiveness to him?

Inspired by a true incident, this edition of Forty to Life includes interviews with the father and mother of the real victim as well as a follow-up with the actual shooter.
