Grim, graphically violent drama in which the life of a man arrested for child sex offences turns into a living hell in prison. Based on Miguel Pinero's experiences while in Sing Sing prison, the story follows Clark Davis (Bruce Davison), arrested for suspected child-molestation, who is sent to a notoriously harsh prison, to be confronted by the dregs of society. Although they have committed their own heinous crimes, the inmates regard 'short eyes', prison slang for sex-offenders, as the lowest-of-the-low, and, in the following days and weeks, Davis is subjected to a series of appallingly brutal acts.
