Will to Change is the story of William Kozielski, a three strikes offender and a 29-year-old parolee from Mississippi who is breaking the cycle of violence and addiction in his life. He becomes a positive force in his community, by mentoring youth out of gangs and delinquent behavior. The film was created as a talking tool for youth and residents of Clarksdale, Mississippi, to address root causes of violence and to seek solutions together, and is available to support community screenings. Since 2014, the film has been used by the Mississippi Department of Corrections to support prerelease and entry programs.
