Based on a true story written by a life time sentenced prisoner, this extraordinary adventure faithfully and voraciously depicts prison life.
Friendship, betrayal, ideologies and secret relationships play simultaneously in this remarkable story of suppressed and emotionally defeated inmates who seem to have lost the passion and the will to live.

A first time offender, who finds himself imprisoned with serious drug users and dealers, discovers strength and fortitude that he didn’t know he had.
Through courage and faith, he vows to stay sane and alive. The struggle between good and evil leads to an unexpected end.
