“Roach” Rhinowsky and Russell Sloan share a jail cell, but they don’t agree on much. Then the prison adopts a theatre program as a form of rehabilitation, and the two concoct a shared goal. They decide the play the inmates will produce, Hamlet, will be the perfect distraction for a breakout. However the play soon worms into their psyches, and they both discover that a 400-year-old play can still pack quite a wallop.
