Eric (Jack O'Connell) arrives at his new prison cell with his explosive temper intact. His first priority is to handcraft a weapon for protection against older inmates. But after a violent incident, Eric barely escapes a brutal punishment from the guards. He is saved only by Oliver, the resident prison counselor — played by Rupert Friend (Homeland) — who diffuses the situation. A fragile bond is formed and Eric reluctantly agrees to join Oliver's therapy sessions. Concerned that Eric may need more assistance to navigate the prison's complex webs of alliances and aggressive racial prejudices, the prison boss calls upon Neville (Ben Mendelsohn - Animal Kingdom ;The place beyond the pines -), a fellow inmate, to keep him in line. Neville is Eric's father.
