Sammi, Henrik, Miriam, and Gert are prison officers and colleagues in an old, worn-down Danish prison. Their work environment is raw and hostile, and their respective lives outside the prison walls are filled with conflict, secrets, and loneliness for very different reasons. Secrets, that will soon resurface and have great consequences not only for the four prison officers, but for everyone inside and outside the walls.
Note from the artistic direction
A complete dive into the Danish prison world. We follow, through the eyes of prison guards, the daily life of a local prison. Extremely realistic, this series depicts the issues of prison overcrowding, on top of a lack of means and workforce, while proposing a strong social critique through, among others, corruption, religion, civilization clash and the difficulty to start over either locked up or free.
