The year is 2022, Marine Captain John Robbins (Ray Liotta) is convicted of murder and sent to a ruthless maximum security prison. Run by the sadistic warden (Michael Lerner), the prison has the ultimate solution for its most troublesome inmates... Absolom. This is a secret jungle island where prisoners are abandoned and left to die - this is prison with just one rule, the survival of the fittest. Robbins must choose to join one of two enemy camps; the Outsiders, savages who live by force and violence or the Insiders, a smaller group of peaceful men led by the Father (Lance Henriksen). With fierce battles between the rival groups and his struggle for survival, Robbins must find a way to escape... Or die.
