Story
Twenty-six years old Lukasz, educated, mild-mannered, falsely accused of assault by a mentally unbalanced woman. Placed in custody awaiting trial, Lukasz’s personality is quickly threatened with complete transformation due to the prison’s pervasive code of criminal ethics. His mother hires a lawyer who, unsuccessfully, trias to get Lukasz out. The decisive moment arrives, when a child molester is assigned as his cellmate.
