Synopsis

"Welcome to the plantation, sister Frances." With those words, Frances Shepherd, a beautiful young mother and nurse, is greeted upon her arrival at Whitehead Correctional Institute, a maximum-security prison for women. Surrounded by hardened repeat offenders, this meek woman--incarcerated for killing her abusive husband--has just joined the ranks of one of the most lucrative businesses in America: the prison industrial complex. With every eye-opening day that passes, with every cruelty leveled against Shepherd and her fellow inmates, it becomes more and more obvious that profit--not rehabilitation--is the goal at Whitehead. After a series of pivotal events force the women to rise up against the injustices at the penitentiary, they band together against the "new plantation" workplace that harvests human labor for profit. But the odds are stacked against them.
