MILWAUKEE 53206 tells the story of those affected by mass incarceration through the powerful journeys of three families. We witness the daily struggle of how incarceration shapes their lives, their families and their community at large. The 53206 ZIP code in Milwaukee is the most incarcerated ZIP code in the United States with 62% of its adult men having spent time in jail or prison. In this character driven ensemble documentary, it reveals through intimate stories how a community fights to survive by ending mass incarceration.
