Based on the play Deathwatch, by Jean Genet.
Three prisoners share a small cell. Two are new to the prison, and in competition for the attention of the third – Greeneyes – an established alpha among the other prisoners. The young prisoner LeFranc goes to great and terrible lengths to impress Greeneyes, but his actions are a pale imitation of Greeneyes’ established reputation, and only serve to destroy them.
The animation Deathwatch is an abstract representation of Lefranc’s transformation and ultimate downfall.
