In a four-day group therapy retreat at Folsom State Prison, convicts sit alongside people from the outside in an intense and honest session delving into their past. The raw and open participation from the convicts gives the outsiders an important lesson in life and the human mind. The multiple award-winning documentary THE WORK is a powerful and striking film, from directors who have had unique access to the legendary California prison and the participants in the therapy program.
