THEY CALL US MONSTERS takes viewers inside the walls of the Compound, the facility where Los Angeles houses its most violent juvenile criminals. To their advocates, they’re kids. To the system, they’re adults. To their victims, they’re monsters.

 

In California, violent juveniles between 14-17 years old can be tried as adults. They are accused of heinous crimes—murders and attempted murders—that leave their victims’ families shattered. We go inside The Compound and meet three such offenders awaiting trial, who tell the stories of their lives through a movie script. Do they deserve a second chance? Do they have the capacity for change? What is society’s  responsibility to these kids? These are the questions legislators are grappling with across the country as they attempt to reform our juvenile justice system. They Call Us Monsters powerfully blurs the line between childhood and adulthood, humanity and evil.
