This is the story of three former soldiers who meet when serving lengthy prison sentences in a high security prison. Billy, Sam and Toby’s friendship is forged at the table where they spend their days destroying CDs in the prison workshop and in the cell block they now call home. Over the years they spend inside, they come to know real tragedy and despair, but also find hope and, occasionally, see the humour and comedy that somehow manage to find their way into prison.

Thrown together by the unhappiest of circumstances, and united only by their status as convicts, Billy, Sam and Toby become great friends, although only one of them will make it out of prison at the end of his sentence. Theirs is a story of lives interrupted by the sentences imposed by a red robed judge, of other lives destroyed by their violence and selfishness and of the life that goes on behind the walls of a high security prison. It is also, though, a story of hope, a story of love and of the indefatigable human spirit found in the most unlikely places.
