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

The team keeps gathering material for a movie about the prison, coming up with more ideas. Aleksandr, Sergey and Boris ask permission from the facility’s administration to contact former inmates, who founded the IK-2 TV cable channel. Aleksandr calls Sergey Kaynov, who now works as a TV producer. Luckily for the team, he agrees to take part in filming.

In the meantime, they show how a cobbler service functions at the facility and what the dormitories look like for well-behaved inmates.
