Storyline

Behind prison walls, corruption, sex and power make criminals out of the guards and heroes out of the guarded. For more than a decade, the lawless guards inside a maximum security women's prison have reigned with impunity - rape, sex for money and illegal favors have become the norm until one woman decides to battle the system. Leading a group of inmates on a risky life-or-death struggle for justice, a ten year silence is finally broken, exposing the twisted truth to the world and enabling the prisoners the freedom to live without fear. Written by Anonymous

Jane Doe #1 speaks
30 December 2006 | by diakennedy7See all my reviews

The movie didn't show and tell everything. I should know, I was there, I am Jane Doe #1. Life hasn't been easy since released after 25 years in there!It still happens. People are fast to judge those behind bars.Because of my coming forward my parole was denied 4 times. Only going through the courts did I gain freedom. If not for that I would still be in prison.Life for me will NEVER be the same.I carry this part of shame with me forever!So you see, its not about a movie its about human beings trying to live in hell for years. Most people could not come out of there and still be human.I pray each day for those still there.Sociaty thinks that all inmates lie, well, thats not so. Many people who have the power over others think that they are god and can do as they please.I have to pray for them also.The system does not always work. People need to be educated!
