We are inside New Folsom Prison, a maximum security prison in California, and the prisoners we watch seem alien, odd and certainly different from us. After all, some have robbed, raped, even murdered. And most will never be free. Their world, as it unfolds before us, seems volatile, brutal, and apparently
lacking all hope. But through the darkness light appears. We hear gospel and listen to poems, the blues and laughter. We see quiet moments and listen to energetic conversation. As the men dare to dig deep, wake up, reach out and create, we - along with the prisoners themselves - discover the unexpected:
love, compassion, brotherhood, and great insight. "At night I fly" at first seem to be a prison documentary, but becomes a profound exploration of what it is to be human.
