Mark DeFriest is an American prison legend, a notorious escape artist who has spent 33 years behind bars, with little light, hope or human contact. Here, we explore Mark DeFriest's life and mind, both the facts of the case and the hyper world of his design, as seen in animations. Interweaving the animated past of Mark's case with the parole narrative, we come understand the facts of Mark's case. He attempted 13 escapes and got out seven times, turning his original four-year sentence into life. The original crime that sent him to prison was merely stealing his own father's tools.
