This documentary about life among the 5,000 inmates of America's largest maximum security prison, Louisiana State Penitentiary, was the co-winner of the Documentary Grand Jury award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. Filmmakers Jonathan Stack and Liz Garbus worked closely with their guide, prisoner-turned-author Wilbert Rideau, the editor of a prison magazine.

The film focuses on the stories of six prisoners, including nervous newcomer George Crawford; elderly Eugene "Bishop" Tannehill, who visualizes a future of eternal salvation; long-time death row inmate John Brown; and dying wife-killer Logan "Bones" Theriot, whose life was so linked to the prison that he overruled his family's wishes by choosing to be buried on the prison grounds.
