Inspired by true events

Busted for smoking pot, suburbanite college-bound Danny is incredulous when forced to spend the night in jail. He’s repulsed by his cellmate, a homeless and mentally ill drug addict who keeps him awake all night with his delusional rants. By morning Danny’s world is completely upended. A Night In Jail is a grim page-turner with a staggering ending.
