Russias Toughest Prison: The Condemned

Documentary which looks into the hidden world of one of Russia's most impenetrable and remote institutions - a maximum security prison exclusively for murderers. Deep inside the land of the gulags, this is the end of the line for some of Russia's most dangerous criminals - 260 men who have collectively killed nearly 800 people. In frank and uncensored interviews the inmates speak of their crimes, life and death, redemption and remorselessness, insanity and hope.
