Plot Summary:

In this brutal prison drama a hen-pecked husband is sentenced to prison after getting caught with
 his hand in the company till. He is sent to a high-rise facility in LA. It seems the fellow was only
following the instructions of his domineering, constantly nagging wife who, as soon as he is put
away, takes up with a more successful businessman. This causes her new lover's ex-lover to get
insanely jealous and kill the conniving wife. The businessman decides to take the blame for the
death and he is sent to the same jail as the dead woman's husband. One of the two meets a violent end.
