The Prison Restaurant

The Clink is a restaurant with a difference. The menu may sound mouthwatering, but the paying customers at this classy establishment tuck into their crab, lobster and coq au vin knowing that most of the staff are convicted criminals.

This unique and controversial rehabilitation scheme, set within the walls of HMP High Down Prison, aims to transform prisoners into fully trained chefs and waiters.

The film follows fiery head chef Al as he employs three new inmates who are struggling to change their lives and turn their backs on crime.
