A film director arrives at a maximum-security penal colony to shoot a documentary about a squad leader who works with prisoners. The manager however, believes that it is not worth showing the daily life of the colony as it actually is and proceeds to shoot staged scenes, which he directs himself. The author of the film patiently records how this movie is shot, but real life still manages to break into the production.
