The prison sitcom Behind Bars returns for a second series with the three cellmates still behind bars. Graf has abandoned all hope of an early release and resorted to the uninhibited use of mind-altering substances, while Erdem remains a big-hearted wannabe gang leader who can’t hold his tongue. Caught in the middle of the trio like a deflated teddy bear is Manni, a benevolent soul who rather enjoys life in jail thanks to his companions and the psychologist Nora. The inmates regularly attend her sessions and, despite a series of calamitous setbacks, she remains convinced that everyone can be helped by therapy. Meanwhile, the arbitrary nature of the despotic prison governor Dr Kempers remains (almost) unbroken. The other jailbirds include Ivan, the leader of the Russian mob, who makes life difficult for the trio and puts their friendship to the test.
