Home to 1,500 of the state's roughest convicts, Hays State Prison in the hills of northwest Georgia is a disciplinary camp with closed security. Meet inmates who swear that prison has changed them- some for the better, perhaps, and some for the worse. We'll meet an inmate on his way to completing his sentence who realizes that prison actually changed him into a stronger and better man.
