    • Synopsis
    • AT NIGHT I FLY is a unique documentary exploring the dark heart and soul of a maximum-security prison in the United States. It exposes the brutality, the bleakness and the heart-sapping reality of a life shut off from the real world. It shows the micro-politics, the social prejudices, the violence of a community that is forced to survive without hope. But through all this darkness come cracks of light. The sounds of gospel, hip-hop, the blues, and even poetry open up a new world. As these men bravely dig deep to find a greater understanding of themselves we see in them unexpected qualities: love, compassion, brotherhood and great insightfulness. We may have started off this journey thinking that these men are alien, our polar opposites, but by the end, we can’t help but see ourselves.
