Steve Harmon, 16 years old, sits alone in his cell musing over what he's come to learn about prison in his short time there. He details the violence of his fellow inmates, but points out the fact that they are all strangers - strangers who somehow still find a reason to hurt each other. Steve says he feels as if he has walked into a black and white movie, but that there are no real pictures. His world is just a grainy screen. He says he is going to write a script. Not a script about his entire life, but of this particular experience. Steve says he is going to name it what the prosecutor labeled him as: "Monster".
