More than a tale of prison break, Escape from Alcatraz is a scathing indictment of a penal system that strives for dehumanization, rather than rehabilitation, of its prisoners.

On a May afternoon in 1943, an American military plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood.Framed as a traitor and a murderer and sent to Alcatraz as a result, you must escape the forbidding, top-security jail, recover the lost evidence and stop the pollution and land sale before it’s too late. Before we get to the escape, we get a history of the prison and its various inmates and the exciting events which occasionally occurred.
