Mothers In PrisonStreaming Video - 2010
Around the world, women are being locked up in record numbers - and, by many calculations, the majority of women in prison are mothers. Their children often become wards of the state or are placed in foster care where neglect and abuse are a lurking danger, and they also run a higher risk of psychological and academic problems. This program endeavors to find out what life is like for the daughters of women behind bars and how "the system" helps or hinders them. In the process, viewers encounter daring new programs that are attempting to break the mother-child cycle of imprisonment which currently plagues societies rich and poor.
