Storyline

Williams is a long term prisoner when Sonny comes and is assigned to be Williams' cell mate. Williams decides to take Sonny under his wing, but his help and protection is conditional that Sonny occasionally has non-penetrative sex with him - masturbation or oral sex. Sonny is repulsed by this. Sonny notices a photo of a boy above Williams' bunk. Williams says that the boy in the photo is his son, and is probably a grown man by now. Williams has had no contact with his son for many years. In the shower block Sonny is confronted with the prospect of male rape by another long term prisoner Jacko (Gary Sweet). Sonny then accepts Williams' protection. Sonny does his time and then thanks Williams for looking out for him during his prison stay. Williams is assigned a new cell mate, and it appears unbeknownst to him that it is Anthony, his own son - with the prospect that Williams will like-wise 'protect' him during his prison stay. Written by Paul Gerard Kennedy

Calm Down
8 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I think jcduffy below went a little over board on this movie. I think everyone on the outside of jail can understand the concept of men being behind bars for years at a time and no women. Of course they have intercourse with each other. This is not news. I think this reviewer is selling everyone a little short about their understanding of what goes on in the world.

This movie was a little short for me in that it really didn't explore these two guys relationship more. It showed how the older more experienced prisoner saved the younger one a few times from getting raped, but it really never explored their actual relationship - the film just thought everyone would understand and that no explanation would be necessary. Well, I would of loved to see the development of this relationship. I mean the scenes with the younger one teaching the older one how to read and the older one in-turn grabbing at the younger ones legs and d_ck, it was real and arousing - for about a minute. Then they would cut to some drinking party with the other prisoners and spoil everything we just saw. One of the best scenes I thought was the younger one at the sink washing something, I think it was his shoes, and he was buck naked and as he was scrubbing, his a$$ was jumping up and down and jiggling and then he ran to the bed and told the older guy - "Thank you for showing me the best of both worlds" and then you assumed you knew what was going to happen next - but then it faded black.

I enjoyed it..........then again it was only a short film. Way too short.
