Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

A women's prison provides the setting for this drama that centers around a naive small-town woman framed by a man whom she met in a nightclub in the big city. She is not welcomed by the inmates and immediately the prisoners are divided. The conflict ends in murder. In the end, the innocent woman's lawyer comes to her rescue and she is at last, freed. Included are two stirring songs sung by the inmates in the prison's rec room.
