Storyline

A maximum-security prison inmate named Louis, who, 24 years after committing a violent crime as a young man, finds himself on the cusp of release from prison, facing an uncertain future on the outside. He encounters Beech, a newly incarcerated young man who offers him much needed-friendship, though it's not without unfortunate complications. The younger inmate echoes of his older counterpart, stirring instincts within Louis that had long been buried beneath a tough exterior. Written by Tribeca Film Festival

No Redemption
24 February 2019 | by CarllebaultSee all my reviews

Great acting, no doubt however there's very little substance. The story line feels like there's more to offer and there really should be. HBO could have had more on their hands but the script let down what could have been. Solid acting but a poor script is where O.G feels more like a PG. (poor Ganster)
