It’s 1980 and with nothing to lose, Raymond Denning escapes Grafton prison in a rubbish bin.
This time he has help from prisoner rights groups and an agenda to raise awareness about police corruption.
The man hunt for Denning turns farcical when Denning uses the media to make the police look foolish.
But old habits die hard and Denning reunites with a familiar character to commit crime.
Before the end, he betrays his cause and becomes the thing he had fought to stop.
