Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison


Show Synopsis

Having committed a crime ten years ago, Smith College alumna Piper Kerma spent one year in a women's correctional facility in Connecticut, where she met a surprising and varied community of women living under exceptional circumstances. She explores the stories of those locked up in a place with its own codes of behavior and arbitrary hierarchies, where a practical joke is as common as an unprovoked fight, and where the uneasy relationship between prisoner and jailer is constantly and unpredictably recalibrated.
