The prisoner R arrives to Denmark's toughest prison, where he's to serve his sentence for a violent assault. R is reduced to a number, a letter, and just another inmate. The prison is a parallel world filled with rules, honor, and debts. A world, in which bars cover the windows and blood stains the floor. R is placed in the most hardcore ward. Here he must find his place in the system, learn to navigate, and fight for survival. This New York Times Critic's Pick was directed Michael Noer and Tobias Lindholm, both making their feature-film debuts.
