Frank (Brian Cox), is serving a life in prison sentence with no chance of parole. Having admitted his own quilt, he's accepted being away from his wife and young daughter and has found life to be very comfortable behind bars. Frank receives a letter informing him his daughter is extremely sick from an overdose. His only thought is to escape and get to her as soon as possible. But this is too large of a task for Frank alone so he enlists the help of fellow inmates Lenny Drake (Joseph Fiennes), Brodie (Liam Cunningham), and Viv Batista (Seu Jorge).
But some pretty low life inmates Rizza (Damian Lewis), the prison bullie and his brother Tony (Steven Mackintosh) almost ruin the plans when Tony sexually assualts new inmate Lacey (Dominic Cooper). Frank will have to become the man he once was to carry it through.
