Product Description:

After 6 years in jail, Hoffman runs into trouble with a mean parole officer that sends him on a downward slide.

Plot Synopsis:

Dustin Hoffman stars in this dark drama about an ex-convict's return to a life of crime after a six-year stint at the state penitentiary.
Max Dembo's troubles begin when, upon release from prison, he moves into an LA hotel instead of a halfway house. This puts him into hot water with his parole officer. But from there Max's life goes into a downward spiral, and together with some of his ex-con friends he embarks on a disastrous crime spree.
