This powerful drama depicts the trials and triumphs of prison inmates and officers in a notorious women's prison. It's a tense and sexually charged atmosphere, a hidden world where anything can happen. In this unusual community, warmth and humor are required in order to survive the system. In the sixth season, the prisoners are shocked to find out that instead of having escaped as everyone thought, their former leader was actually murdered. And glamorous Tanya Turner (a character from Footballers' Wives in a crossover arc) endures a brief stint in the prison and is accused of poisoning her fellow inmates.
