This film looks at how the prison has moved on since the infamous 1990 riots, when prisoners were protesting against brutal conditions and an outdated system. 

A world apart from today’s regime, where harsh discipline has given way to a duty of care and rehabilitation and where the carrot of prison privileges is used to induce prisoners to behave well – instead of simply the stick of punishment. 

After his marriage to Kelly, model prisoner Adrian Fielding and his new wife are looking forward to his move to a low security prison, which will also mean home visits. We witness the effect on Adrian and Kelly as this prison move is delayed and the pressures of life alone with her four children begin to take their toll on Kelly. 

And David Charlton, Strangeways’ most disruptive prisoner, returns to abuse staff yet again.
