After another brutal prison fight the warden has had enough of inmate number 48’s behavior. But the inmate calmly explains that he just wanted the wardens attention. He’s found a way out and is going to turn the wardens life into a living hell. The warden ignores him, but when Inmate 48 starts doing unexplainable things, the warden finds it unsettling. He knows the inmate is playing mind tricks on him and is determined to stop him. But when the warden turns up the heat, so does Inmate 48. Some people only learn when the gloves come off.
