The Prison Within

Prisoners incarcerated for murder inside San Quentin Prison transcend the punitive prison system by working with victims of violent crime to unearth the root cause of their violence. Each character undergoes a radical transformation, revealing how everyone, on both sides of the wall, can break free from their own personal prisons.

The Prison Within is narrated by Hill Harper (The Good Doctor, Homeland, CSI:NY, Covert Affairs) and author of Letters to an Incarcerated Brother. Director Katherin Hervey is the first filmmaker to gain access to chronicle these intimate and revealing sessions inside San Quentin Prison.
