Juan, a newly hired prison guard touring the facility, is injured by falling masonry, and placed in Cell 211 just as a riot breaks out. A bad luck cell has been done before but this award-winning Spanish brings psychological depth and realism. Juan, now posing as an inmate to save his life, must react and adapt quickly to survive scrutiny by the prison alpha dog. He’s always moments away from discovery, and his moral convictions begin to realign in this slow burning, unpredictable and original thriller.
