1959. Desperate, branded, forgotten by the law, Female Convict #1031 fights to stay alive in the concrete womb. Condemned by her fellow inmates and in her own mind, #1031 expects the worst. When a new inmate, Laura (#1059), is brought into the cell, #1031's paranoia grows. Is this striking Blonde to be her ally, or possibly, her executioner? Written by
This film reads like a noir, and looks like a beautifully gritty piece of 70's exploitation cinema...so what's not to like!? I usually really dislike films that rely on voice over...but here it is very effective and pairs itself perfectly with the tone of the visuals.
Margaret Anne Florence plays her characters struggle really well...and Aprella is great in her role, and has in my opinion the best line in the film. Ashlie Atkinson is really memorable, and nearly steals each moment that she is on-screen as the sadistic night guard! The only way to improve this film, would be to give it a feature length treatment. Like every good short, it left me wanting more!
