'Louis spends two weeks with these inmates and quickly discovers that they inhabit a strange world within a world with its own rules and its own brutal code of conduct.

He meets amongst others David Silva who is serving 521 years and 11 life sentences and is locked down for 23 hours a day. Silva's crimes as he describes them 'would never be forgotten' and he talks of how he faces up to the prospect of never leaving prison.

Louis meets Deborah and Rob a transgender couple who live like husband and wife and how Deborah feels that after 20 years of continual offending, San Quentin now feels like home'
Great documentary to watch regarding San Quentin State Prison, Louis Theroux is one of my favourite TV journalists. But for my own personal research, it didnt answer many of my questions regarding the Mexican Mafia, or even touch on Latino/Hispanic gang culture inside San Quentin at.
