There are only a few ways to leave prison: serve your time, get out early on parole... or escape.
Steve, Danny, Phillip and Ron are all trying to make their way out of prison. In our final episode of the season, these men share their stories of going through the parole hearing process, and contemplate life on the outside after being incarcerated for decades.
Big thanks to Steve Wilson for telling his story, and to Danny Plunket, Phillip Melendez and Ron Self for sharing their parole board experiences.
