It was once believed solitary confinement would reform misbehaving prisoners, turns out it may push them to the brink of insanity. In Solitary Nation, premiering Tuesday, April 22 on PBS and at pbs.org/FRONTLINE, FRONTLINE takes you inside Maine's maximum security prison, where a new warden is trying to move inmates out of solitary, which isn't as easy as you might suspect.
