When I saw this I thought of the story by Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.

'Two months later, Andy is released from solitary confinement and returns to the main prison population a seemingly broken man resigned to his fate. Out in the yard, he gives ominous instructions to Red, telling him that if he is ever released he is to go to a specific spot in a certain hayfield near Buxton, Maine to find something that has been buried there.'
