7.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes Logo99%
Reelgood Logo
81/100
Released: 2013Rated: R
Drama, Crime

What it's about: 19-year-old Eric, arrogant and ultra-violent, is prematurely transferred to the same adult prison facility as his estranged father. As his explosive temper quickly finds him enemies in both prison authorities and fellow inmates — and his already volatile relationship with his father is pushed past breaking point — Eric is approached by a volunteer psychotherapist, who runs an anger management group for prisoners. Torn between gang politics, prison corruption, and a glimmer of something better, Eric finds himself in a fight for his own life, unsure if his own father is there to protect him or join in punishing him.

Where to Watch: Available to watch free online (Tubi TV & Vudu), stream on a popular subscription service (Netflix & Mubi) & rent or buy from $2.99 on 7 services (iTunes, Google Play & 5 others).
