Hard TimeSeason 3

“Hard Time 3” takes a gripping look at some of America’s toughest prisons. In Season 3, we enter maximum-security prisons in Georgia and follow the progress of selected prisoners, their fight to stay clean, their relapses into criminality – even behind bars. Violence reigns at another prison, where home-made weapons are used to attack guards and inmates. Elsewhere, cell phones are found, which pose a major threat to prison life. Tension mounts as the authorities are tipped off about a massive forthcoming protest. Meanwhile, at the Metro women’s prison, a young woman in jail for drugs cannot fathom that she is now in a paramilitary system where she and her fellow inmates must follow prison rules and the convict code. The program’s spotlight on a small number of individuals gives rise to an emotionally powerful interplay of souls gone wrong.
