It's about an prison drama. I'm really confused about the phrase verb 'to give in'.
I've already found that sense out on the web, but most pages are saying that means "to submit, to hand in" or "to yield, to admit defeat". But there's something I don't understand in this script.
In drama, someone was working very hard, but the other man came and talked to him like this:
"You see, sometimes, no metter how hard you try, it just won't give in."
The part I don't get it is "won't", basically, in this context, if I think "to give in" means "to yield, to admit defeat", it doesn't make sense for me. If that sentence was "it just give in.", I'd understand that.
I'm very confused now. Please help me.
