Get short URL

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.

Sergey is getting ready to see his grandmother during a twice-monthly family visit. Meanwhile, other convicts return to filming the documentary about the prison, experimenting with their home-made Steadicam. They also talk about chifir’ – a strong tea drink, often associated with Russian prison. Aleksandr, Pavel and Sergey show how to brew ‘chifir’ and describe its mind-altering effects.
