In this documentary we are given a rare and compelling insight into life behind bars at two of America’s maximum security prisons, where the ‘worst of the worst’ are incarcerated. But while Oklahoma State Penitentiary’s H Unit and Minnesota’s Oak Park Heights are separated by 700 miles, a vast chasm exists in their operating philosophies.
