Aleksandr, Sergey and Boris are prison inmates, but they refuse to succumb to the boredom of jail. They found their true passion behind a barbed wire fence: TV reporting. The three friends work for IK-2 TV, a cable channel, broadcasting to inmates from inside the prison. While interviewing other convicts and working in different parts of the prison, they discover a lot of new and interesting things about the place, and the people living there and their own hidden talents.

This episode follows the inmates working on a movie about the prison’s anniversary. Aleksandr, Sergey and Boris decide to make a documentary, featuring old footage from their predecessors and new shots from the facility’s church, mosque and garden. Between filming, they share thoughts on the time they’ve spent in confinement and what brought them behind bars.
