Synopsis

This odd comedy-drama opens in the mid 1990s with the funeral of two elderly black men who died in the prison where they had spent 65 years together for a crime of which both were innocent. Their intertwined stories are then told in flashback, and the story moves, sometimes awkwardly, between comedy and very serious moments. This doesn't have the depth of that great prison movie The Shawshank Redemption, but it is a funny, sometimes poignant film nevertheless.
