Summary
"Provides an intimate look inside the lives of six inmates at the notorious maximum security Louisiana State Penitentiary. The filmmakers spent a year filming at what was widely known as "America's Bloodiest Prison," called Angola after the home of the slaves that once worked its fields, and still known as "The Farm"--Its fertile soil enriched by the surrounding Mississippi River that regularly floods the prison. These are the stories of men sentenced to life--or death--behind bars, some fighting the system to prove their innocence, others paying the price to society for the harm their crimes have caused. But the inmates are sustained by a powerful and innately human longing for redemption that allows them to hold onto hope that their lives will have meaning and that they can achieve forgiveness"--Container
