Open air penitence

Benjamin (28) has been in and out of prison since he was 16, and Trond Einar is known as one of Norway's most dangerous men. While Benjamin is imprisoned in a maximum security facility, Trond Einar is at Bastøy – 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. At Bastøy Trond Einar gets a chance to get his life back on track. Will Benjamin have the same opportunity?
