Red (Freeman), serving a life sentence, and Andy Dufresne (Robbins), a mild-mannered banker wrongly convicted of murder, forge an unlikely bond that will span more than twenty years. Together they discover hope as the ultimate means of survival. Under horrifying conditions and the ever-present threat of violence, two lifers reclaim their souls and find freedom within their hearts in THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.

It's funny. On the outside, I was an honest man. Straight as an arrow. I had to come to prison to be a crook.
