Welcome to the worst of the worst. Do a crime and get caught: you go to jail. Behave poorly in jail and you go to solitary confinement. But what if you don’t clean up your act? There’s another step – seldom heard about. Welcome to the prison within a prison. Break the law in Ohio and you go to prison. Break the rules on the inside, and you’re going to the jail within the prison system. When you come here you have already gotten in trouble..in jail. For 1 year National Geographic followed the lives of inmates and officers in the State of Ohio. This is a year of hard time. Some of the images are very graphic. Watch your back and make friends. Learn the ropes. Learn where to go and where not to go. Learn who is weak and who is strong. Survive.
