The Escapist

"He can escape from anything... except his past."

While most people would do everything in their power to avoid going to prison, one man hatches a complicated scheme to actually be sent there without knowing if he will be able to escape. When ace pilot Denis Hopkins witnesses the murder of his beloved wife during a break-in at their seaside resort home, Hopkins follows the killer through his trial, conviction and incarceration at Sullen Voe prison.

Hopkins's revenge plot involves committing a relatively minor crime, but one that will surely get him sent to that specific prison, where he will finally have a chance to confront his wife's killer face to face.
