In early 2015 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, 6 prisoners took hostage of the warden and successfully won the attention from the public, after the convicted former president was given the compassionate release. The 6 prisoners did not attempt to escape, but rather chose another path leading to tragedy, after making their statements to the society. Exile 5.42 deconstructs this true incident to question the current criminal justice system.
