Watch and listen to what today looks like through the eyes of a man who missed out on more than four decades of the world's evolution.

When Otis Johnson was 25, he was sentenced to a life in prison. He left the life he knew in the 1970s and was released from prison in 2014, aged 69. 

Imagine how the world changed for you in the past decade or just while you were growing up and then stop to think how it was for this man to wrap his mind around the way of life today after being isolated from the world for 44 years.

Watch the interview Mr Otis gave in the clip below. Insightful.
