FULL SYNOPSIS

In this prison drama, a woman makes the ultimate sacrifice for her child. Sarah ([[Performer~P54534~Catherine Oxenberg~catherineoxenberg]]) is a nurse whose husband, after losing his job, becomes an abusive alcoholic who batters Sarah and their eight-year-old son Jason (Zach Gray). When Sarah's husband attacks her in a drunken rage, Jason finds his dad's gun and shoots him dead. Hoping to spare her son, Sarah claims to have pulled the trigger herself, and her court-appointed attorney, Patrick Burlington ([[Performer~P22478~Jeff Fahey~jefffahey]]), proves no match for Judge William Engstrom ([[Performer~P30122~James Handy~jameshandy]]), known as Maximum Bill for his severe sentences. Engstrom sends Sarah to a women's prison for eight years, where cold-hearted warden Ms. Reineke ([[Performer~P23906~Louise Fletcher~louisefletcher]]) and sleazy guard Duane ([[Performer~P237079~Scott Schumacher~wendyschumacher]]) inform Sarah that the prison has an unusual "work release" program: the female inmates can reduce their sentences and make money by dancing topless (and turning tricks) for Mr. D. ([[Performer~P199564~Bo Hopkins~bohopkins]]), who runs a strip joint just outside the county line. Those who refuse to play along are subject to violent abuse from both the authorities and the other inmates. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
