Prisoner R finds himself serving a sentence for violent assault in Denmark's toughest penitentiary.
It's his first conviction but he ends up with the hard-core lifers in a world filled with rules, honour and debts to be paid. A world in which bars cover the windows and blood stains the floor.
He must find his place in the system, learn to navigate, and fight for his survival.
With unflinching realism and a cast made up of ex-convicts and guards, the tension and violence are palpable in every scene.
Directors: Michael Noer and Tobias Lindholm.
Starring: Johan Philip Asbaek, Dulfi Al-Jabouri, Roland Moller.
