Based on the true story of the uprising at Attica Prison in 1971. Michael Smith, a new recruit to the prison service, along with several of his colleagues get caught up in a prison riot fueled by bad prison management and a lack of understanding by the guards —Rob Hartill
True story captured on film
"Against the Wall" reveals a reality everyone knows is there and yet is afraid to look at. Our Correctional System not only doesn't help any in the ressocialization of the inmate, but also generates more violence. What makes this movie a great movie it the fact that you won't stop thinking about it the moment it's over. This is real life, this is true. And you'll think of it over and over when you lay down to sleep.
