Synopsis

Oso Blanco is the largest, most dangerous prison in the Caribbean. This is where the two biggest gangs in the Puerto Rico prison system where born: Asociation Ñeta and Los 27. Ángel Feliciano “El Jíbaro” is the most veteran inmate in the country’s jails: forty-eight years behind bars. El Jíbaro is the bodyguard of Carlos Torres Iriarte “La Sombra”, founder and leader of Asociation Ñeta, and he is also a mediator trying to preserve the unstable balance between the two gangs inside Oso Blanco. There are hundreds of murders and over seventy disappearances in the sinister history of this prison. César Flores has been its governor for over twenty years, and is connected to El Jíbaro by a very special bond. A unique filmic document before the prison’s imminent shutdown
