Storyline

In a women's prison in Brazil, the inmates are young and beautiful, the warden is a sadist, all but one of the guards are cruel, and the nurse is an incompetent cuckoo. To make it difficult for the inmates to hide contraband, they wear no underwear. They are alternately murderous and orgiastic with each other, and they engage in sex play with some of the guards. The warden pimps out inmates to wealthy lesbians. With the help of the nurse and under the cover of Carnival, three inmates stage an escape. Once out, will they contrive to stay undiscovered, or will their natures guarantee an ill-fated end to their attempt? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Lesbian action and real x-rated sex
22 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The action starts hot and heavy after a murder in the prison yard. The fire hoses are tuned on, and soon the skimpy prison uniforms look like a wet T shirt contest at Bike Week, with boobs flying out in some cases.

This isn't your ordinary prison. The warden and guards don't bother with bras and only button the bottom button of their uniforms. Maybe it is just too warm in Brazil.

The warden (Maria Stella Splendore) makes a little on the side selling prisoners to wealthy women (Meiry Vieira), and the prison nurse (Marta Anderson) gives massages, focusing on the breasts before she brings out her toys.

The prisoners manage to amuse themselves in the showers and in their cells. I have never thought a shower could be so much fun.

Every tussle with guards results in clothes being torn off. They should be more careful.

Three of the girls eventually break out, and that's when some really hot and heavy action occurs as they don't just have girls to play with.
