Huntsville Prison Blues

Every day in Texas, more than a hundred people walk out of the state's prison headquarters as free men. The Walls Unit in Huntsville, Texas is where all male prisoners are processed for release. Producer Dan Collison went to Huntsville to talk to some inmates just about to make their return to the outside world.
