The film is a futuristic prison movie. Husband and wife John Henry Brennick (Lambert) and Karen Brennick (Locklin) are nabbed at a future US emigration point with an illegal baby during population control. The resulting prison experience is the subject of the movie. The prison is a futuristic one run by a private corporation bent on mind control in various ways.
Fortress was released in September of 1993 and grossed over $6 million at the box office. The film was followed by a sequel, Fortress 2, also starring Lambert in March of 2000.
