While serving his term in the prison, he becomes friends with a fellow prisoner, Ellis "Red" Redding (Morgan Freeman). Dufresne becomes involved in a money-laundering scheme run by the warden but manages to turn the tables with a few twists and later manages to escape the prison.

Actors who will are expected to mark their presence at the reunion are Bob Gunton (Warden Norton), William Sadler (Heywood), Mark Rolston (Bogs), Frank Medrano (Fat Ass), Alfonso Freeman (Red's Mugshot and a Fresh Fish Guy), Scott Mann (Glenn Quentin), Renee Blaine (Linda Dufresne) and Claire Slemmer (Bank Teller).

The celebration will also feature a tour to more than a dozen sites shown in the film around Mansfield, including Ohio State Reformatory.

In addition to the celebration, fans can catch the film at the Renaissance theatre, Mansfield once again on August 16, where the film was shown back in 1994.
