Juan Oliver wants to make a good impression at his new job as a prison officer and reports to work a day early, leaving his pregnant wife, Elena, at home. His destiny is forever changed by this fateful decision, as during his tour of the prison, an accident occurs that knocks him unconscious. He is rushed to empty cell #211.

As Juan recovers, the inmates of the high security cell block stage a riot and hijack the penitentiary. As the violence escalates, the remaining prison officers flee, leaving Juan stranded and unconscious in the heart of the prison. When Juan awakens, he immediately takes stock of the situation. In order to survive, he must pretend to be a prisoner. Juan develops a dialogue with the violent leader of the riot, Badass, and the two begin a partnership, Badass fully believing that Juan is a new inmate. As the drama heightens, unexpected shifts in character both within and outside the prison occur.
