Taking out one of the top awards at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival, Dog Pound is a tough, visceral and unflinching prison drama that takes a cold hard look at the brutal world of juvenile detention. Enola Vale Correctional Center in Montana is a dumping ground for boys the system doesn't know what to do with. Young, caged and angry, they live every day in a brutal environment based on a rigid power structure. The long-term inmates rule, and the newer you are, the more you will suffer. Butch (Adam Butcher), Davis (Shane Kippel) and Angel (Mateo Morales) are new arrivals. They have never met before but they soon realise the odds are stacked against them. Their only hope for getting through their sentences is to watch each other's backs. But friendship will only get them so far when their endurance is stretched to the limit. With intense performances from a talented young cast and a hard-hitting ending, Dog Pound is a film that will stay with you long after the credits roll.
