Built in 1852, San Quentin is one of America's oldest state prisons and suffers from chronic overcrowding. Although famous for its death row, the institution's main task is to house a transient population of 3,000 murderers, sexual predators and small-time criminals. In this compelling documentary, Louis Theroux spends two weeks with these inmates and quickly discovers that they inhabit a strange world within a world, with its own rules and a brutal code of conduct.
