Set in a real maximum-security prison in Indiana, O.G. (2018) tells the story of Louis Menkins, who, 24 years after committing a violent crime, finds himself on the cusp of release from prison. Anxious about the uncertainty of his future on the outside, he is also faced with a tough decision to put his own release at risk in order to protect Beecher, a recently arrived young inmate, from growing gang controversies. Jeffrey Wright delivers a sensational performance as Louis Menkins, while Theothus Carter, a young man incarcerated with a 65-year sentence, plays Beecher without any former training in acting. More than 120 incarcerated men participated in the film as cast and background, as well as dozens of guards who work at the prison.
