STORYLINE


James Conway is shaking his head in disbelief as he walks through the institution they call ”prison” in Halden in Norway. During a one week filming trip with The Finnish Broadcasting Company he visited different kinds of correctional institutions in Finland and Sweden, but the Norwegian ultra liberal regime was nothing like what he’s used to.

“Why don´t you just give them the keys?” he asks as he inspects the top modern music studio complete with electric guitars, mixing console and, as icing on the cake, a Toto poster on the wall.

In general the American guy seemed to really embrace the idea of a punitive punishment system. Norwegian prison seems to actually be focused on “Rehabilitation”.
