Mark DeFriest was once known as Houdini for his multiple and improbable jailbreaks.  He was condemned to Florida's toughest prison after a lone psychiatrist declared he was faking mental illness.  When that doctor reaches out 30 years later, DeFriest finds an unlikely ally willing to examine his infamous past and offer new insights to the Parole Commission.
