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.
