In this classic program from the POV series, playwright Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues) leads 15 female inmates-most convicted of murder-through a series of exercises and intimate discussions, enabling them to delve into and expose their most terrifying realities as they grapple with the nature of their crimes and their own culpability. The documentary culminates in an emotionally charged prison performance of the inmates' writings by acclaimed actors Mary Alice, Marisa Tomei, Glenn Close, Rosie Perez, and Hazelle Goodman. An outgrowth of Ensler's workshop at Bedford Hills Correctional Center, What I Want My Words to Do to You is a breathtakingly candid portrait of life behind bars.
