In most parts of the world, prison isn’t meant to be a fun place. You don’t typically wind up in one because you did something good. If you’re in prison for a long time, you probably stole from someone or killed someone. Basically, prison is not enjoyable.
It would make sense, then, that people would want to do everything they could to get out of prison. Some even create elaborate schemes akin to those you might see in some sort of AAA blockbuster starring Nicolas Cage or Steven Seagal, maybe even both.
When these real life prison escapes do happen, they draw the attention of many. Some can be mundane, but some really are things of beauty.
