Reintegration

After several long and arduous years in a cold and lonely cell, the endless prison term has finally drawn to a close. The weary and dispirited inmate can at long last return to his home and family, who have been anxiously awaiting his arrival. Although this may seem like a dream come true, an end to all of this family’s troubles, the reality is quite different.
