Make him dig holes – right? So when Stanley (wrongly accused of stealing) is sent to boot camp in the scorching desert, that’s what he has to do. ALL DAY LONG. The evil camp warden says it’s to reform him. Is that the real reason – or must Stanley dig up the truth? Welcome to the prison camp that everyone wants to break into. Have you served your time?
