Video produced by the Restorative Justice Council and Why me? providing an insight into what a real restorative justice conference looks like.
Recovering from crime is based on the transcript of an actual restorative justice meeting between a burglary victim and her offender, with actors portraying the people who took part. It was directed and filmed using a technique called verbatim, where the actors are fed their lines through an earpiece.
