More than 20 years after a prison riot that ended with the death of the warden, former guard Edward Dwyer (Paul Benedict) returns to the long-closed facility. Now a warden himself, Dwyer is starting a new experimental program with psychiatrist Harold Langer (James Coco) and a hand-picked group of eight prisoners.
