In 2006, film directors Christian Suau and Ramiro Millán were at the Río Piedras State Penitentiary, Os Blanco, as part of the filming of a music video. Long before shared curiosity about the hidden in these walls stories, but when the filmmakers saw the friendship between the prisoner Angel Luis Feliciano, alias "El Jibaro," and the guard Cesar Flores, became convinced that he had to tell a story framed in this prison complex. Suau explained that the film is divided into two parts: what happened in those corridors and the friendship between the inmate and the prison guard. "They are two chapters. The first is hell known as Oso Blanco, as the protagonist. The second is the human history of friendship between the prisoner's longest locked in the correction system and the guard, "said the filmmaker, currently referring to disabled- place where the two most notorious camps of the correctional system were developed of Puerto Rico: "net Association" and "27".
