    Lenny Henry plays double murderer Frank Watt, who is getting ready to face life on the outside after 30 years in prison. He's looking forward to getting out, but things have changed a lot since the '80s, and he's institutionalised. He quite likes his bookish, monklike life inside, and the anger he was boiling over with when he went to prison is down to a manageable simmer.
