Meet Wayne Chessington, a thirty-year-old man who just wants to get on in life. After moving to Glasgow and being discouraged by the lack of jobs available, he finally lands a job that could be the making of him.
Once Wayne begins his job as a prison officer at the only private jail in Scotland, he realises during the training process that it's not the correct career path for him. Starting on the infamous H Wing, which consists of protected prisoners, days of witnessing constant violence begins to discourage him.
His lack of appetite for the job increases as his relationship with the Gang of Three on the wing becomes hostile, and the arrival of psychopath Alan 'Cutter' Drake only adds to his consternation.
After a hostage situation, and the arrival of drug baron, Tam Boyd, Wayne realises that the jail has finally become too ugly for him, and with his broken marriage, he begins to lose control. He realises that the violence from the prisoners and the officers in the prison is a world he's desperate to escape from.
But will the unpopular officer leave unmarked?
