Avery had it all: his beautiful girlfriend, Krista, a young son and a full scholarship ahead of him. But in the blink of an eye, it was all taken away. What started as a night out with his buddies ended with the shooting of a cop and Avery behind bars. He's innocent, but that doesn't matter in a place that has its own set of rules. As Krista works to prove his innocence, Avery struggles to survive the day-to-day hardships of prison life. In the tradition of "Oz" comes a story of what it takes to get by in the toughest place on earth, starring Richard T. Jones (The Wood), Gabriel Casseus (Black Hawk Down), De'Aundre Bonds (3 Strikes), Melissa De Sousa (The Best Man), Bill Nunn (Spider-Man) and rap superstar Master P.
