Lynn Schaffer is willfully irresponsible once too often, gets fired and refuses a plea-bargain with her employer. She's now convicted and because of this uncooperative attitude gets the maximum sentence, 10 years in a women's jail wing. Model husband Larry, who wasn't informed of her dumb schemes is left running her appeal, the household and spoiled daughter who now feels abandoned. Since most inmates are junkies or prostitutes, sergeant Ed Crang and fellow corrupt jailers can run a 'favors in kind exchange'. For rebels, it gets worse. Larry however has his own radio show, so it all hangs on gathering proof. Written by
Based on a true story, Prison Of Secrets, exposes a shocking truth within the penal system, where this one woman (Zimbalist, who okay made a mistake) a new fish, bravely went up against some of the corrupt prison wardens, who were sneaking young women out at night, some really young one, for prostitution, or having their own way with them. One of the corrupt wardens happens to be Dan Lauria (Kevin Arnold's father in The Wonder Years). Gary Frank, an actor I like from an old show called Family plays Zimbalist's husband, who sides with her, him too being warned off It's great to scum like this dealt with, and I must say there was some dramatically powerful/unnerving moments by these warden pigs. I like too Zimbalist's outcome, for coming forward, where she spent the remaining sentence under house arrest. POL is worth a view, even if you aren't a t.v movie fan, where there are better t.v. movies on the shelf, but for one of this ilk, it's pretty bloody good.
