Description

In 1995, Jerry Brown, 18, was sentenced to life without parole at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola; America's most infamous maximum-security prison. Most of its 5000 inmates are serving sentences so long that they are going to die there. Now Jerry Brown is the star of a brutal event: The Angola Prison Rodeo. Each Sunday in October, volunteer inmates battle bulls without training. For the tiny flicker of fame and a few dollars these men will risk everything. And some will die. Why do they do it? This is a gripping and revealing look at America's brutal justice system and the prison system that crushes hope.
