Plot Summary
Life is tough for inmates at this brutal prison: sadistic guards, routine punishments and beheadings at the yard's guillotine for anyone who steps out of line. Sensing that the best way to survive is to align themselves with the toughest prisoner, clever jewel thief Jules (Leonard Nimoy) and fey hoodlum Maurice (Paul Mazursky) both look to the hardened and imposing meat-head murderer Greeneyes (Michael Forest). As these rivals battle for their prize, a strange love triangle forms.
