In upstate New York, a level 4 maximum-security prison called Oswald State Correctional Facility, houses inmates in a special sector of the prison called “Emerald City”. Operating under experimental conditions, Em City aims at rehabilitating and educating its inmates on the wrongs they’ve committed in the free world rather than simply letting them do their time while they await their parole. Several gangs in the prison round out the cast, each gang and respective member struggling with their own problems; everything from running inside drug trades to hatching other money and power schemes are the different games being played. Attempting to hold the peace and keep the inmates in order are unit manager Tim McAnus and warden Leo Glynn.
