In this gritty prison thriller, a passionate prison guard finds himself intimate with a sexy inmate and trouble ensues. The guard, Dan Cappelli, works in a Philadelphia jail. He has a hair-trigger violent temper and after brutally defending a fellow guard who was attacked by an inmate, is reassigned to the women's block. There he encounters Gidell, a hard-as-nails inmate convicted of money laundering. The two find themselves sexually drawn to each other and an illicit torrid affair ensues, but when Gidell's outside lover comes for a visit and mistreats her, Dan goes off like a bomb and ends up on suspension. He begins drinking and soon begins losing his sanity in the face of his self-imposed solitary confinement. When Gidell tells him she is pregnant, he helps her break out of prison. More mayhem ensues.
