It is one of the largest women's prisons in the world, full of murderers, violent criminals, and drug dealers-but many at Valley State Prison are hoping to turn their lives around. Recorded at the jail in 2000 and again five years later, this MSNBC documentary profiles three women who contemplate the severity of their crimes-ranging from manslaughter to murder-and their chances for emotional and spiritual healing. The film also features Warden Gloria Henry, whose self-proclaimed duty is to help inmates rehabilitate, and guides viewers through a typical day at Valley State, from breakfast to educational programs to addiction therapy to lights-out. The often desperate situation of pregnancy behind bars is another major topic.
