On the 50th Anniversary of Johnny Cash’s legendary performance at Folsom Prison, our cameras are granted unprecedented access to film legendary Mexican band, Los Tigres Del Norte, as they perform two spectacular concerts - one in the men’s facility and the other in the women’s.  The concerts are intercut with interviews from latino inmates who reflect on their upbringings, their difficulties, and the tragic circumstances that brought them to prison.  The music of Los Tigres and the personal stories of the inmates are interwoven in such a way that they are inextricably linked and a special meeting between the band and the inmates show how tight that bond really is.  The film is powerful, at times joyful, and a seminal moment in the lives of both the band and the prisoners.
