A teacher lives a lonely life, all the while struggling over his son's custody. His life slowly gets better as he finds love and receives good news from his son, but his new luck is about to be brutally shattered by an innocent little lie.
Thomas Bo Larsen,
The R of the title stands for the young protagonist, Rune, fearlessly played by Pilou Asbæk. Imprisoned for violent assault, he's a cocky, good-looking young man placed in the hardcore ward, where his survival depends on quickly learning the prison's parallel world of rules, honor, and obligations. R also stands for Rachid, a young Muslim prisoner who becomes Rune's friend and accomplice, defying the rigid racial stratifications among the inmates. Written by

This film about Horsens Stateprison seems unimportant and the problems the film displays are shallow. The plot is boring and seen before. But worst of all the film leaves you with one question! and that is: have I just wasted 1 hour and 35 minuts of my life on nothing.
It seems like the only thing a movie needs to get good reviews these days, is for the film to end badly, its almost like nobody likes happy endings these days, with that said these movie doesn't even leave you with a higher meaning, there is no need to analyse its just a plain boring movie about absolute nothing else but to tell how hard it is to be in prison. YAWN!!!
