Forget ‘Prison Break’ and ‘The Green Mile’ – this is life behind bars like you’ve never experienced it before. It’s a world inhabited by memorable characters from beautiful young boys to hardened (sometimes literally), older men and a cat called Plato.
1970s Chile. Jamie is sent to prison after the murder of his best friend, ‘The Gypsy’. Young and good looking, he catches the eye of ‘The Stud’, an older, respected man who soon stakes his claim. Under the protection of ‘The Stud’, Jamie is dubbed ‘The Prince’, sparking animosity amongst other inmates.
When The Prince finds himself drawn to another prisoner, he learns that his protection comes at a price. Finding himself at the centre of prison politics, the Prince is caught in a war between love and loyalty that threatens to plunge the whole prison into chaos.
The film has some intoxicating elements of homoerotic fantasy in its depiction of prison life but the brutality and violence that its protagonists endure is never underplayed.
