Brand New HD Restoration from the Original Camera Negative! Legendary filmmaker Michael Mann (Thief, Heat, The Last of the Mohicans) made his feature-length directorial debut with this classic TV movie starring the incredible Peter Strauss (Rich Man, Poor Man) as Rain Murphy, a man serving a life sentence for killing his father. A man whose home is Folsom Prison, a place where only the toughest breed of criminals – murderers, rapists and armed robbers – are sent. His passion is running… he runs to escape the mean and hopeless life he must lead; to free himself from the inmate tensions and power struggles. Then he’s given a chance… a chance to train for the Olympics… a chance at glory and freedom. The stellar cast includes Richard Lawson (Poltergeist), Roger E. Mosley (TV’s Magnum, P.I.) Brian Dennehy (F/X, F/X2), Geoffrey Lewis (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot), Billy Green Bush (Monte Walsh), Ed Lauter (Breakheart Pass), Beverly Todd (Lean on Me), William Prince (The Gauntlet) and Richard Moll (TV’s Night Court). Winner of three Emmy Awards including Best Actor and Teleplay (Patrick J. Nolan and Michael Mann) and Emmy Nominee for Outstanding Drama or Comedy Special.
