Based on a real place and actual events, The Prison is a story of natural, unnatural, and supernatural incarceration. "The Hill," as New Rome Correctional Institute is known to guards and inmates alike, was once a state mental hospital,closed after a mysterious fire. Twenty years later it reopened as a prison, but the past won't stay buried, and, as the saying goes, those who forget it, are doomed to repeat it.

"I'd say 80% of The Prison is based on actual accounts told to me by staff and former inmates. The overall plot and the ending are fictional, but the place is real."
