The Saskatoon Redemption

It's not really possible to title this story anything else, is it? The Saskatoon Redemption?

Saskatchewan (Reuters) - Six high-risk prisoners escaped a Canadian jail last summer after spending four months chipping a path to freedom with nail clippers and other makeshift tools, according to a government report released on Thursday.

The prisoners, four of whom faced murder charges, used their tools to remove a heating grill and steel plate and win access to a brick exterior wall.

What were they at high risk of? High risk of escaping?

Although, it has to be said, in the real movie (err, in the sense that there can be a "real" movie) it took 20 years to make the escape.

Here it was only four months. Although, if you're going to be really picky, it was two man years. Still only 10% of the fictional version.
