Welcome to Season Two: AFTER LIFE

Art by Mara J. Reynolds for Gray Area

Meet Gilbert Bao, who was sentenced to life in prison but found a new life after life. In our first episode, Gilbert takes us through his old neighborhoods as we explore the many factors and reasons why a frightened 8-year old from East Los Angeles grows up to become a man facing a life sentence.
