This film covers the case of the "Angola 3," Robert King Wilkerson, Herman Wallace, and Albert Woodfox, arguing that these Black Panthers incarcerated at Angola prison in Louisiana are political prisoners, as are many other prison inmates. It puts their case in the context of the war between the J. Edgar Hoover's FBI and the Black Panthers and other radical groups, and of extreme brutality at Angola prison in the 1960s and 70s. It tells how the Angola 3 founded a Black Panther chapter inside Angola prison, and how brutal conditions inside Angola led to federal oversight. It argues that Angola prison officials concocted cases that kept the three in prison beyond their original sentences, in order to punish them for teaching prisoners to stand up for themselves.
