Hard Time: Season 2

about the documentary

Prison is about life: serving it, living it, and taking it back. HARD TIME Season 2 takes viewers on a yearlong journey behind bars in some of Ohio’s largest and toughest prisons, following the lives of those who work and serve time in one of the largest correctional systems in the country.  It’s a brutal world where respect is hard-won, violence is a constant threat, and redemption is an elusive quest.  Each hour follows the struggle to maintain order, examining Ohio’s unique approach in trying to balance the rule of corrections with the goal of rehabilitation. This is a year of hard time as you’ve never experienced it – told through the intimate stories of inmates and correctional officers.
