Short Eyes | 1978
Clark Davis is a middle class white man accused of raping a young girl. When he is incarcerated for the crime in a New York City prison, he is condemned as a pedophile, and immediately turned on by everyone except an older prisoner named Juan who treats him decently. Davis has no memory of attacking the girl, but has molested children in the past. Because the case against him is weak, Davis will go free sooner or later, unless Juan tells the authorities about the confessions Davis has made to him. As Juan struggles with the decision of what to do, the other prisoners are planning on getting rid of Davis for good.
