Venture inside the relationship of a solitary confinement prisoner and an artist who befriended him. 

Angad Singh Bhalla’s Herman’s House, airing Sunday, July 19, 2015 at 9 p.m. on WXXI World,  is a portrait of a man who won’t give up fighting for his freedom and, inevitably, a critique of a justice system that has confined him for decades in solitary—a condition that some decry as torture. The film is even more the story of an unlikely artistic collaboration that brought thousands of Americans face-to-face with the harsh reality of Wallace’s confinement and went on to change profoundly the lives of both the Louisiana prisoner and the New York artist.
