Despite providing invaluable help to the police department, Mark Clayton (Neil Fitzmaurice) finds himself alone, confused, and serving a four-year prison sentence on trumped-up assault charges. It doesn't take long, however, to adjust to life behind bars, and with the help of fellow inmate Murray (Bernard Hill), Mark attempts to stand up to a system that has already left him stranded. Mark is eventually released, but his initial high fades quickly after he finds out that the stigma of having spent time in jail, deserved or not, may have marred the rest of his life, and that being out of prison does not necessarily mean he's free. Going Off Big Time was directed by Jim Doyle, and also features Dominic Carter, Sarah Alexander, Nick Lamont, Gabbi Barr, Nick Moss, and Vinnie Adams. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
