Bastøy is a prison island in Norway, a halfway house between prison and society. It holds 115 men serving the last part of their long sentences. There are no cells, no cameras and no fences. It’s a two-hour swim to the mainland and yet… no one does it. This film sheds light on people you don’t often see and the process they face on their way back to the world.
