Synopsis

In 1974, a hot-headed, 19 year old named Michael Peterson decided he wanted out of the drudgery of civilized society, and so, with a homemade sawn-off shotgun and a head full of dreams, he attempted to rob a post office. Swiftly apprehended and originally sentenced to 7 years in jail, Peterson has subsequently been behind bars for 34 years, 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement.

Assuming the celebrated stage name Charles Bronson, he has forged an outrageous reputation through hostage taking and rooftop protests to become a notorious figure in the public's consciousness.
