When Michelle married her long-time friend Jermaine on the visiting floor of a prison, she hoped they would soon share a life in freedom. Jermaine claims to be wrongfully convicted. He is serving a sentence of 22 years to life. For years, Michelle fights tirelessly to prove his innocence while also caring for her children, Paul and Kaylea, as a single mother. Then, a new piece of evidence is discovered in Jermaine’s legal case, raising her hopes for his immediate release. Almost a decade in the making, “For the Time Being” is an intimate exploration of female resilience and a timely look at the far-reaching consequences of the ailing U.S. justice system.
