Travelling To The Future: My Life After 44 Years In Prison

Science fiction loves a good time travelling movie. Television shows and movies like Back to The Future, Terminator, Futurama, and Doctor Who are just a few examples of beloved time travel stories that make us long for the technology to skip through the years.

Otis Johnson missed all those stories because he’s been in prison since 1971. When he was finally released in 2015, at 69-years old, everything was so unfamiliar to Johnson that is was like travelling into the future. It’s an eerie real-life version of Brooks from The Shawshank Redemption, Reading struggles to make sense of a world where everyone has iPhones and video advertisements play on windows.
