Sam Sheppard discusses activities that took place while he lived in both the honor and hospital dormitories at the Ohio Penitentiary and during his time at the Marion Correctional Institution, including performing surgeries under the auspices of a Dr. Hershberger, near-involvement in various physical altercations with other inmates, and threats by fellow inmates to kidnap his young son for ransom.
The final few minutes include conversations about and with his then-current wife Ariane, explaining how Sam would facilitate getting gifts--including an engagement ring--to her from inside prison.
