The Worst of the Worst: Portrait of a Supermax Prison depicts Connecticut’s sole supermax prison, where many inmates are held in solitary confinement for months and even years at a time. Hard-hitting interviews with a range of experts and administrators are interwoven with the powerful stories of those who spend their days within the walls of Northern: inmates and correctional officers.
