Production Background & Fun Facts: This is a film that hopes to open a discussion about the reality for many women in prison in the UK. It comes from a personal experience and it reflects the flaws of a prison system that was designed for men. This system hugely overlooks the needs and conditions of women victims of abuse, emotional trauma, addiction and poverty.
