Episode Title: 
Solitary Nation

About 80,000 Americans are held in solitary confinement on any given day. It was once believed solitary confinement would reform misbehaving prisoners, but it turns out it may push them to the brink of insanity. In Solitary Nation, 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.
