After resigning, a secret agent is abducted and taken to what looks like an idyllic village, but is really a bizarre prison. His warders demand information. He gives them nothing, but only tries to escape.
This Australian series has, after 692 episodes, received cult status all over the world. The series takes place in Wentworth, a prison in Australia. Wentworth is a high-security female prison. The women are there for all sorts of crimes. We get to follow how they got there, their life in the prison and what becomes of them afterwards. We also get to follow the staff, their work in the prison and their personal relationships.Written by
Across episodes 309-313 Judy Bryant goes to Sydney (off-screen) to visit Sandy Willson at Guthrie House. This is a reference to the show's unofficial prison advisor: aged 20, Sandra Willson murdered taxi driver Rodney Woodgate and consequently served 18 years between 1959-77, becoming the longest serving female prisoner in New South Wales. On her release from Mulawa Women's Detention Centre she established Guthrie House, the first Australian halfway house for female parolees. Series creator Reg Watson said he thought more of Sandra's opinions than anyone else's. She met Betty Bobbitt in reality (Judy's openly gay character being heavily based on her) and died in 1999.

This is the best series ever shown on television. It has it all! Laughs, nerves, drama and heart. It´s not at all like any other soap-opera. One thing I like about the show is that it´s about the weak in society. Women in prison, what group can possibly be lower on the scale? And this series is totally on their side! Everything about this series is great! See it!
