Prisoner depicts the life and work of four prison officers - Sammi, Henrik, Miriam, and Gert. The story starts when they are forced to thoroughly investigate to save their jobs. The prison will close unless they correct the bad press, hierarchy, and drug trade. The investigation turns into a battle for survival - not only for the prison but for everyone inside and outside the walls.
