Director Vilgot Sjoman draws on his experience as a former prison guard to illustrate the problems of the penal system. Filming was done a Langholm prison, where inmates and officials are interviewed. Using a combination of documentary and fictional styles, the film illustrates the sordid life and living conditions of a prisoner. There are some modern facilities and techniques used for rehabilitation, but the majority of facilities are woefully understaffed and underfunded.
