Cañon City, Colorado is at the heart of Prison Valley. A town with 13 prisons, and 36,000 inhabitants, prison is their business. The isolation of the region and its eerie mood are perfectly suited to in this innovative and interactive documentary as it reveals some fascinating insights into the absurdities and intricacies of the American penal system.
