Accused of embezzlement, young accountant Manuel is sent to Barcelona’s Modelo prison. As he awaits his trial, a riot is being planned… The film is based on true facts, where inmates attempted to break out from the legendary penitentiary in the context of the Amnesty Law of 1977, for which political prisoners were to be released as part of the democratisation process. One of Spain’s most preeminent filmmakers, the Seville born Alberto Rodríguez, delivers with Prison 77 a striking political/action thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
