Inmate University

Ironwood correctional facility, set in the middle of the california desert, is a series of extremes. Over-crowded, understaffed, and subject to brutally hot summers, tensions at this prison seem to rise with the thermometer. But there is a group of inmates among the 4,800 incarcerated at ironwood dedicated to self-improvement. Those taking part face stiff opposition from their gangs to attend classes. When race and gang riots erupts in the yard in the withering 112-degree heat, many of the prison’s 81 student inmates must make critical decisions that will affect their lives both inside and outside the prison walls.
