Russia's Toughest Prisons

Russia's Toughest Prisons
For the first time ever, Russia is opening one of its most guarded institutions to an international film crew: its prison system. Our cameras take you inside a 200-year-old Russian prison and to another that is home to more than 700 of Russia's most dangerous killers — combined, they have killed over 3,500 people. We'll go inside Black Dolphin prison, where a cannibal talks openly about his crime, divulging how he boiled, fried and ate his murder victim.
