Herman Wallace may be the longest-serving prisoner in solitary confinement in America - 40 years and counting in a 6-by-9-foot cell. This award-winning documentary is a moving account of the remarkable expression his struggle finds in an unusual art project proposed by New York artist Jackie Sumell.
