National Geographic Television & Film
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Minnesota's Oak Park Heights represents a new breed of prison called Supermax, reserved for only the most dangerous, incorrigible offenders-many of whom are kept on semi-permanent lockdown. As a means of reducing tension, Oak Park Heights has developed a plan that allows many of these deadly criminals to leave their cells during the day-if they behave. This program shows how the facility's resident murderers, rapists, and arsonists respond to the narrowest sliver of freedom.
