The story of Piper Chapman, a woman in her thirties who is sentenced to fifteen months in prison after being convicted of a decade-old crime of transporting money for her drug-dealing girlfriend.

Did You Know?
One of Larry Bloom's major first-season storylines is the Modern Love column he writes for the New York Times. Larry Smith, the real-life fiancé (now husband) of Piper Kerman actually did write such a column for the Modern Love section of the Times, about his experience with being Piper's fiancé while she was incarcerated. It was published on March 28, 2010, and unlike the fictionalized version of the column, it was titled "A Life to Live, This Side of the Bars" (instead of the much cruder "One Sentence, Two Prisoners") and it didn't mention any anecdotes about Piper's fellow inmates.
