Plot: Due to his wife's and her lover's murders in 1947, young banker Andy is sentenced to life in prison. Shortly afterward, Andy made an effort to become close to the well-known Red among the inmates, and the two grew to know one another. Andy then utilized his professional expertise to assist the prison administration in avoiding paying taxes and in money laundering while simultaneously earning the respect of the inmates through his interactions with Red. Though, like Rhett, he appeared to have moved from hatred of the wall to tolerance of it, his deep-seated need for freedom continued to drive him toward his aspirations.
