In the 1960s and 70s, Paul, Jack, Michael, and a generation of poor Black and Brown men like them, entered the California prison system as teenagers. Over the course of their lives, the US prison system developed into one of the largest and most powerful in the world, and would find themselves trapped in isolation for decades. This feature documentary tells the story of the hunger strike to abolish the practice of indefinite solitary confinement in California prisons.
