Director Cody Jarrett crafts this lurid, exploitation-style women-in-prison flick set in the sweltering Florida Everglades. The year is 1975. The Sugar State Women's Facility is a place where innocent girls are forced to work in the swamps under inhuman conditions, and turn tricks for the warden once their spirits have been broken. Here, corruption, brutality, and sexual abuse are a way of life. But this penitentiary is a powder keg, and when undercover reporter Valerie March manages to get inside, the fuse is lit. After staging a bloody revolt, the furious inmates take their ultimate revenge. Should March live to live through it all and pen her exposé of Sugar State, her story will shock a nation.
