Troubled youth Ron Decker (Edward Furlong, American History X) is sentenced to a ten-year stint in the notorious San Quentin State Prison for a drug-dealing conviction. Inexperienced in the ways of prison life, he's taken under the wing of Earl Copen (Willem Dafoe, To Live and Die in LA), an experienced con with the entire prison in the palm of his hand inmates and guards alike. But as Ron grows increasingly cocky in his privileged role as Earl's confidant, is he in danger of biting off more than he can chew with some of the jail's more volatile inhabitants? Based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Eddie Bunker (Reservoir Dogs), Animal Factory was Steve Buscemi (Lonesome Jim, Interview)'s second stint in the director's chair and sees him marshalling a formidable ensemble cast, including Bunker, Danny Trejo (Machete) and Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), for a powerful and sincere account of the men caught up in the penal system and the deals they cut with each other, and themselves, in order to survive.

Steve Buscemi directs this US prison drama starring Edward Furlong as Ron Decker, a 21-year-old suburban kid who lands a particularly harsh jail sentence after getting busted for dealing marijuana. In prison he tries to maintain a low profile, but this gets increasingly difficult for the handsome youngster surrounded by sex-starved inmates. Fearing sexual assault, Ron appeals to Earl Copen (Willem Dafoe), a prison veteran serving an 18-year sentence. Earl, who is respected and feared by both prisoners and guards alike, practically runs the prison from the inside. Ron is soon drawn into Earl's inner circle, growing increasingly indebted to him, and wondering how he will be expected to pay him back.
