Synopsis:
There's only one way out, and 100 fools stand in the way! Too Sweet likes three things... Candy bars, makin' love and fighting. Arrested while defending a beautiful hooker in a roadside diner brawl, he finds himself unjustly incarcerated in a violent prison hellhole where life is cheap and punks get owned by predatory lifers. There's only one way out...Victory in the ring! Now Too Sweet has to fight for his freedom in series of boxing battles, all the while watching his back in the prison corridors, waiting for the cold sting of the shiv that might end his life.
Experience Jamaa Fanaka's extraordinary grindhouse classic - Which is arguably the last great Blaxploitation flick - and pray to God you never end up somebody's bitch in the Penitentiary!
