Benjamin (28) has been in and out of prison since he was 16. He has grown accustomed to a life behind bars, and is currently imprisoned in a maximum security facility, dreaming of being transferred to Bastøy prison – located a beautiful island in the Oslo fjord with no walls or barbed wire. Norway is known to have the world’s most humane correctional system, but the reality is that several open prisons are closing down. Will Benjamin get the opportunity?
