Buns not guns: The prison that breeds entrepreneurs

A prison in Uruguay encourages inmates to set up businesses whilst serving their sentences.

Punta de Rieles is a progressive "open" prison just outside the capital, Montevideo.

Its culture is built on the prison director's belief that "if the context changes, the man changes".

BBC News went to meet some of the inmates to hear how the scheme works.

Produced by Frederick Bernas & Rayan Hindi.
