JUST US, a documentary from filmmaker Nyjia July, carefully examines one of the biggest problems plaguing the justice system: the epidemic of generational imprisonment. Set in the Mission District of San Francisco, the film introduces criminal and juvenile justice advocate Joanna Hernandez. A former teenage mother who spent many years in and out of jail, Hernandez co-founded the community group "Young Queens On The Rise" with the goal of helping at-risk youth avoid her mistakes. Her world is rocked when her own son is arrested for a serious crime. JUST US follows Hernandez to various court hearings, jail visits and town hall meetings. Although Hernandez is used to advocating for her clients, she has difficulty dealing with the magnitude of what could possibly happen to her son, the closest person in the world to her. How could this happen? Was her work in vain? What's next?
