ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Girls Incarcerated follows teenage girls who are incarcerated at American correctional facilities, documenting what their lives are like behind bars. Interpersonal relationships with their fellow inmates are a vital part of the experience because making a wrong move can lead to trouble. Among the milestones celebrated while locked up are birthdays and a high school graduation. And, as you would expect with a group of young people, romance blossoms for the inmates. Being locked up can be hard on anyone, but it can be especially taxing for young people who miss out on some milestones that teens should be able to enjoy with their friends and family.
