After being convicted of murdering her husband, Bea Smith arrives at the notorious Wentworth Women's Prison. In the oppressive detention center harsh conditions prevail, because the Director Meg Jackson likes to use the inmates and their power struggles to keep control. So Bea has to acclimatize quickly, so as not to get under the wheels. However, she finds it particularly difficult that she is separated from her daughter by the prison walls.
