Solitary confinement room

6x9 takes you to a virtual cell, telling a story of the psychological damage of extreme isolation. Right now, more than 80,000 people are in solitary confinement in the US. They spend 22-­24 hours a day in their cells, with little to no human contact for days or even decades. We invite you into this world. Actual voices recorded by PBS!

It cut out one time and I had to reopen the app then it ran smooth.
