The warden at the facility is Colonel Winter (Gandolfini), who runs the place with a menacing command and an iron fist, but who has nothing but respect and admiration for General Irwin at the outset. However things between the two take a turn for the worse once the General begins to realize the unrestrained nature of Col. Winter�s tyranny in the prison.
