Looking for relief from boredom and a chance to get off the wing, seven young fathers in prison sign-up for an education programme. They try to use the workshops to settle scores and to rise up the prison pecking order. But they’re confronted with more than they’d bargained for, as they face up to their relationships with their children and their own fathers. Self-deceptions, vulnerabilities, and failed hopes and dreams are revealed, unleashing anger and violence that the workshop leaders struggle to contain.

'A compelling group portrait of seven frustrated – not to mention frustrating – young men in prison... as they try to settle to the daily group task of exploring what fatherhood means to them.'  Evening Standard
