City banker Andy Dufresne arrives at Shawshank Prison in 1947, convicted of two brutal murders, doing a double life sentence. Within the confines of the prison, Andy forms an unlikely friendship with the prison "fixer" Red. He also becomes popular with the Warden and the prison's guards, as Andy is able to use his banking experience to help the corrupt officials amass personal fortunes. But for an inmate, all that counts inside prison is its own society--who is strong, who is not--and the measured passage of time, during which Andy finds that survival comes down to a simple choice: get busy living or get busy dying.
