    Angela Duvall's junkie brother is involved in the murder of a big drug pusher. Angela takes the fall for her brother and is given an 18-year prison sentence in a brutal women's prison. The prison doctor, realises she is innocent and becomes determined to save her, but the brutal prison regime have no interest in justice being served.
