Winner of the award to the Emerging Documentary Filmmaker Award by the International Documentary Association, Darius Clark Monroe presents in his first feature the story of his own life, that of a sweet boy incapable of doing anyone harm who one day decides that the best way to solve his family’s economic difficulties is by robbing a bank. He is arrested for this crime and sentenced to five years in jail, Clark Monroe leaves the prison knowing that he is not interested at all in going back there. He gets a degree from the Tisch School of the Arts at the NYU, he turns the camera around and analyses what led him to committing the crime and what effect did it have on his loved ones. Evolution of a criminal, produced by Spike Lee, wonders if the criminal is born or made and if change is possible
