  • Life in a maximum security prison is about rules, routines and rigor. No questions asked. No choices given. But what happens when inmates step out into a world where they’re free to make decisions?
    Desperate to break his cycle of reoffending, Boon Keng takes matters into his own hands and seeks to confront his greatest obstacle. After being given a new lease of life, Iskandar grasps an opportunity he neglected in his childhood. Rusdi’s loved ones try to dissuade him from returning to a career that sent him on a downward spiral. Under the supervision of psychologists, Khai revisits his dark past.

    quite impressed with how Graceson handled the situation. he knows that he might explode if there's a direct confrontation so he found a third party to explain the issue and express his frustration. at least he knows his temper and avoids situations where he might get triggered. shows that he is trying to improve

      Yea being self aware of your own faults is the first step to trying to be a better person. Noticing your bad habits and knowing you’re about to do them and do what you can to prevent them is a great start

      It does seem it is in the best interests of the prison to try and arrange something as simple as a replacement hook as soon as possible to prevent violence from occurring. It's not making him entitled, I think after the third time it should've been done given the simplicity of the request and what the benefits were. Unless of course the other prison officer was trying to get him to be provoked on purpose.

    It's heart warming to see how much desire Iskandar has to better himself while in Prison. Unfortunately many inmates turn to crime after release either due emotional unavailability and social stigma. Many companies still refuse to grant ex-inmates a job due to their past background despite them having a valid diploma or degree
    This is a gap that needs to be filled.

      If you were the HR person that's hiring someone, most people would obviously choose someone who has never convicted felony vs. someone who did. By you choosing someone who has convicted multiple felonies in the past as an employer, not only are you putting yourself in danger, but you're also putting your other employees in danger and risking the company itself. You never know when that person can just snap and murder someone again based on an argument or conflict. That's why companies always do a background check before hiring someone, because they want to make sure they're not hiring someone who has psychological or criminal background. The reality is that once you have convicted a felony, it's on your record for life. That's why people often end up going back to prison after they're released because they have nowhere else to go.
      People screw up; that's perfectly normal. But using their life being harsh or how a person couldn't cope with their state at the time as an excuse to use drugs or murder someone doesn't justify as an excuse. Regardless how they were at the time mentally or physically, killing someone is still murder. The only time where it's justified is under self-defense where someone else is trying to kill you and you defended yourself by killing that person. Or if you're trying to protect someone else from being killed because a robber broke into your house or some kind, those are the situations where your actions are justified and don't considered as a crime.
      I grew up in a ghetto environment too. I went to a school where I was the only Asian person in the entire school. My classmates, a lot of them were in gangs and sold drugs in high school. The Latinos were calling me chino and the white and black folks were calling me chink. Girls were getting pregnant before they were even an adult while still in high school. But I knew better than to get myself involved with those people, because I knew that wasn't something I wanted to be part of in my life. I walked away from that and pursued my own path because I wanted nothing to do with those crap in my life. My parents never had time to look after me because they were always busy working and trying to put food on the table. I wasn't gonna throw all that away for my parents to give-up their future just for me to be a dumbass and go into prison.
      Racism was very bad back then, and it's still bad now in America. It's the reason why Black Lives Matter (BLM) and AAPI exist and people are rioting and fighting back, because they're tired of their lives being treated as a tool and dying for nothing time and time again. But just because I grew up in a shitty environment, it doesn't mean I use that as an excuse to justify why I continue to screw things up in life. It's okay to make a mistake in life, because we all make mistake. But to continue to make the same mistake, then that's on you.
      To change your own life, you are ultimately the one that needs to decide whether you truly want to go the extra mile to change yourself and better yourself and surround yourself with people that supports your goals and dreams. If you're someone that lacks the capability to decide what is right or wrong for yourself, you're most likely going to get yourself into trouble with the wrong crowds. People can't teach you common sense. That's something you need to figure out yourself, too.
      There are so many people out there that became successful today that had nothing when they were struggling too. For example, Oprah Winfrey that we all know today is possibly one of the most iconic figure that represents not just black community but also the women community. She was raped twice by her own family growing up, and the environment she grew up in was shitty too. She got out and away from that, even if it meant going homeless on her own at a young age, because she wanted to change her life and make a difference. It eventually later led what we all know as her today, because she continues to help other similar women that went through the same experience as her, in hope of she can guide them back on the right track.
      I seen so many people continue to use so many excuses because of where they came from, but they don't realize that their past doesn't determine where they're going to end up in the future. It's what you do now that does, starting from this very moment and onward. You have 24 hours a day. Everyday, you can either get up and make a difference in your life or you can stay down and do nothing. The reality is that you can either get busy living or you can get busy dying. The choice is up to you.
      As 2Pac once said, "Though life is complicated, only what you make it to be."

    I’m not from Singapore, but I did grow up with a mother who was in prison for most of my life. I have no contact with her now as an adult, mostly because she was a bad person in general and was abusive the few times she was around, but for a long time I let that anger I felt towards her generalize itself to anyone in prison. Documentaries like these really did (and still do) remind me that going to prison doesn’t make you a bad person. It just means you messed up. Thank you to everyone involved in making this- I think it’s important to be reminded that, even when we make mistakes, we’re all still human.

      Anyways it's not as simple as system vs society. It's a result of all.
      But to address your question.
      1. Have modern work & educational programs relevant to rejoining the workforce & society.
      2. Have early release incentives for good behaviours.
      3. Have work release & home detention programs only for the well behaved. (This will ensure work & accomodation before release)
      4. Get rid of the officer vs prisoner mentality.
      5. Have incentives to clear criminal histories for certain crimes after an amount of good behaviour & progress.
      6. Have set sentences so everyone can work towards the same goal of release.
      Currently you get released with a government cheque with accomodation at a halfway house full of addicts & no work and best of luck wishes.

    Singapore learnt a very hard lessons in its founding years regarding how volatile inmates can become in a prison. In 1963, our first offshore prison would also become a last when inmates overran a prison on the island of Pulau senang and eventually burnt it to the ground.
    The government learnt the lesson of how crucial mantaining a strict yet humane prison system was and over the next couple decades would go on to develop prison complexes across singapore...from paya lebar to admiralty.
    However to standardise operations/etc...most of these prisons were closed and inmates then relocated to Changi after a major expansion in the late 2000s.

This is an example of treating them like individuals and having support systems in place but making sure there is still accountability for wrong actions and giving them help to improve their lives.. even dietary requirements are taken into consideration like...wow.

    I feel bad for Rusdi. It seems he hasn't yet accepted how drugs are harming his body, his relationships with others, and his ability to live an enriching life. As with most people who still haven't accepted the reality, he's likely hurting from something deep inside -- some hole, some emptiness, something causing him to chase energy/greatness through meth. He needs a dedicated drug rehab program with a line of therapists to break through that wall. His gf and mother can't on their own.

      Yes that same job that land her son in jail due to a fitness senior who introduced him to drug,but that doesn't mean every fitness company have bad workers.
      So if he like being in fitness,why not support rather than discouraging him?
      He has not accepted the reality,so the mother need to give him positive impact rather than be negative because he kept saying that he always get job like being a delivery driver which he didn't like.
      Then she should tell him why she doesn't want him to be in fitness or why it ok to be a delivery driver.
      People like Rusdi need more support especially from his family.Yes they are happy that his family come,but please try not to nagged at them,rather give positive impact on them.

      When he mentioned about how meth kept him working 4~5days without sleeping , indicates that he was using drugs to boost productivity with his hustle, not something you'll hear from a typical getaway from the harsh reality junkies who abuse purely for pleasure.
      The consequences he gets for using meth is a long term in a prison which puts his productivity to 0 that negates all means for his abuse in the first place thus he's making a horrible decision. Back in the 1950s meths were openly used among high profile business personnel to cope their schedule with their exponential business growth (even now in some places)and when under control, it does no harm to the surrounding people. Only thing he doesn't realize is, now that meth are heavily controlled EVERYWHERE on this earth, relying his productivity based on meth's energy is not a reliable option yet he doesn't seems to get that (eg saying he'll move out to other country).
      Doubt he'll change for his life because to him, life without meth is too slow and boring. Used to do volunteers at rehab facility back in my student days but a pleasure seeking junkie due to their harsh life circumstances are more likely to be able to get out from the spiral than those who abuse with more productive purpose.

    Claps for Iskandar for his change in life-direction, plans and attitude. Hope he will make it outside and employers give him a chance to start right.
    But, Sadly it seems like there’s high-chances that Rushi is going to be back to prison because he never change; as in never change his attitude to life.
    My personal advices to Prison-Counsellors, I don’t think self reflection to induce changes is enough but also needs force-input-programme to force inmates hate their past and then be determined not to be who are were before. And of course that also needs to be supported with after-prison-job and social-integration programme. These inmates are not kids nor teenagers already, they had been through a stuff/unfortunate circumstances in life that created/built/led to their current situation. So ‘happy” counselling will not stay with them after they are released from prison, why, because they will forget all these ‘counselling’ when facing with real daily life stress ie money and human interactions.

They called it "angin dalam and angin lua is diffrent" but once you released, its a total diffrent story... Only the persevere ones, the ones that have full family support can finally change, but those who lacks of it, defenetely will make a U turn in... What im trying to say, all these inmates, they really needs family support, positive friends to allow them to lead a new lifetyle... All the best to them.... Part 4?
