However, ˜Supermax isolation in prisons is drastically changing that perception. In Supermax isolation inmates are routinely incarcerated in twenty-three-hour-a-day lock down. The treatment that the US Department of Corrections reserves for the ˜worst of the worst, includes confining prisoners in eight by ten foot cinder block cells, with no windows, solitary meals, five hours a week of outdoor exercise, and limited to no human contact. Lock Up / Lock Down examines not only life inside the walls of Supermax isolation, but also the possibility of a successful life in society after incarceration. The moral dilemmas and effectiveness of this method of imprisonment are weighed and scrutinised in the show, asking if the increasingly popular Supermax facilities create emotionally unstable criminals and return them to society more dangerous than when they were incarcerated.
