Dramatic Escape transports viewers into the lives of maximum-security prisoners mounting a stage production of A Few Good Men at Sing Sing, The production is part of  Rehabilitation Through the Arts, which teaches theater, dance, writing, visual arts and music in five New York State prisons and dramatically reduces recidivism rates among RTA participants. The film is co-produced by RTA and Goldcrest Films and the play within the film is directed by John Jay College of Criminal Justice Professor Lorraine Moller.
Viewers get an intimate look inside prison as the film traces the men's steps from auditions through curtain call. Along the way, prisoners reveal their personal stories, their everyday struggles, and contemplate whether redemption is possible. Dramatic Escape was the winner of the top award at the 2016 (In)Justice For All Film Festival in Chicago and was featured at the festival’s opening ceremony.
