A in-depth non-fiction exploration of romance between prison inmates on the inside and romantic women who fall in love with t hem. More
Weak, manipulated women and dangerous, scheming inmates. That’s the stuff prison relationships are made of. Or are they?
Society dehumanizes inmates and with them the people who love them. With 2.4 million inmates in America, prison relationships are becoming more mainstream than fringe. Facing the stigma and shame of prison, some abandon inmates. Others cling to the men they love behind bars. But why?
Meet eleven families and couples living with an incarceration. Discover what brought prison into their worlds. How do they maintain family ties while one half of the partnership is behind bars? What struggles do they face in a world bent on tearing them apart? Each has a story to tell.
Why and how would any woman love an inmate—someone society deems unlovable? Are prison wives and girlfriends the equivalent of the Crazy Cat Lady? Or could they be your neighbor, your coworker, or maybe someone you love?
Most shocking is why these relationships need to grow and flourish. Your life could depend upon it.
