The Prison

Program type: factual SERIES
Number of seasons: 1
Number of episodes: 7
Running time: 22’
Original title: Zakład karny

A new series that shows what is happening behind closed prison walls. The world from behind the bars seen from both the prisoners and prison officers perspective. Drug trafficking, aggressive prisoners or the escape of one of the convicts - this is an everyday reality that workers of a large prison must struggle with. In the new "The Prison" program we will show complex mechanisms that rule behind iron bars in prison.

On one side, ruthless criminals, officers on the other. 1000 prisoners and 70 employees. In each episode you will be able to see how one of the largest prisons in Poland functions. Words, gestures, tattoos and secret messages is a secret code whose knowledge ensures survival - both.
