Unidad 25 is the only jail-church in Latin America. There, in an environment that functions according to its unique set of rules, two hundred and fifty prisoners and thirty guards share their passion for Evangelism. This documentary film follows a prisoner from his arrival to the jail, his initial fear and distrust of the people around him, through his eventual indoctrination and transformation into an Evangelical prisoner.
