A group of incarcerated teenage girls are given a shot at redemption in a most unlikely form: a musical. This film will follow three inmates as they write, rap, and rehearse the harrowing events leading up to their crimes. In the process, they’re challenged to find their own voices, reclaim their humanity, and take a first step toward breaking free of the prison system.
