26-year-old college student Lukasz Machnacki is arrested and falsely accused of assaulting an old lady, who mistakenly picks him out of a line-up. Lukasz finds himself shoved unceremoniously into a six-man cell in a mazy prison. Lukasz’s only hope to survive the constant threat of sudden violence is to adapt to the dog-eat-dog philosophy.
