Plot

Imported from the only story that couldn't be included in The Farm Angola USA, the short follows and event. Every Sunday in October, the Louisiana State Penitentiary hosts one of America's most unusual events. Amateur inmate cowboys risk their lives to participate in this dangerous sport in front of five thousand cheering locals. Is this modern-day Roman Circus, or the one time in the year that these convicts have the chance to prove their courage?
