At the end of 1968, in a gray prison cafeteria in Northern California, impervious to the political tumult outside, hard men doing hard time witnessed the making of a legendary album that would catapult a country singer onto the path of becoming
a legend.
Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison remains one of the greatest live albums ever made, and the man himself one of America's greatest troubadours and advocates for prison reform. "I didn't go into it thinking about it as a crusade," remembers Cash, "I just don't think prisons do any good...Nothing good ever came out of a prison." This film will expose a lesser known "Man in Black" through an exciting, visually compelling examination of this historic concert.
