About

Once known as Houdini for his multiple and improbable jailbreaks, Mark DeFriest was condemned to Florida's toughest prison after a lone psychiatrist declared he was faking mental illness. When that doctor reaches out 30 years later, Mark finds an unlikely ally willing to examine his infamous past and offer new insights to the Parole Commission. Interweaving the animated past of Mark’s prison experiences with the verité parole narrative, the film is a de facto courtroom where the facts of his case are finally laid out and his journey comes to life.
