It's 2002 and The California Penal Authority has reopened the most notorious prison in history -- Alcatraz. Disgruntled prison bureaucrat-turned-criminal mastermind Donny (Chestnut) has assembled a commando team to infiltrate the newly refurbished, high-tech fortress in order to force a death row inmate to reveal the whereabouts of $200 million worth of gold.

Inmate Nick Frazier (Ja Rule) must help undercover FBI agent Sascha (Seagal) rally the other inmates to stop the invaders -- before they murder the Supreme Court Justice who is present for the impending execution.
