A recounting of the 1971 prison rebellion that occurred at the Attica Correctional Facility in New York and the events leading up to it. Amidst poor treatment of inmates, racial tension, and power struggles the correctional facility erupted into a five day riot. Over 2,000 inmates took control of the prison with 42 hostages and demands for better conditions and political rights. To this day the Attica facility riot remains as one of the deadliest prison riots in United States history.
