In a groundbreaking penitentiary run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti, prisoners use a surgically implanted device that administers doses of mind-altering drugs. For serving as guinea pigs, your sentence is reduced. In Spiderhead, there are no bars, no cells or uniforms, the volunteer prisoners can be themselves… until they change completely. Sometimes for a better version. Need to relax? There’s a drug that does that. Don’t know what to say? There’s also a drug that can solve it. But when prisoners Jeff and Lizzy form a bond, their journey towards redemption takes a turn for the worse as Abnesti’s experiments begin to test the limits of free will.
