A look at five extraordinary women incarcerated at New York's only maximum security prison, Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, who are trying to raise their children from prison. While these women face the day-to-day struggle of life behind bars, they make every effort to maintain strong relationships with their children and play central roles in their lives. Supported by a revolutionary on-site daycare created by Sister Elaine, that promotes opportunities for incarcerated women to see their children, a space for positive change has been created in the least likely of settings.
