Escaping Destiny is about the Pioneer Program, an educational initiative being implementd in a juvenile detention centre in Oakville, Ontario. This program, for which students are given an English high school credit, uses genetic mapping, or genograms, to predict the future of young offenders in the hope of enlightening and educating them to break the cycle of violence. Through the life of one young offender, the film shows how the cycle can be broken.
