Summary
Prison Lullabies is the remarkable portrait of four women living on the bad side of luck, struggling with drug addiction, arrested for dealing and prostitution and serving prison time with one common bond: they are pregnant. Amy, Monique, Joann and Ann Marie -- they all have given birth behind bars. For these women who are on intimate terms with sexual abuse, poverty and addiction, the Taconic Correctional Facility in New York State offers a rare gleam of hope. One of only five prisons in the U.S. to provide a nursery program for inmates, Taconic allows the women to keep their babies for the first eighteen months of their lives while insisting that the mothers participate in a rigorous series of classes that range from basic child care to anger management, and drug counseling. Each woman is released from prison in the course of filming. Each must make life altering choices: whether to find a job and break the cycle of relapse and re-arrest that has led to the loss of her other children, or pick up the crack-pipe, abandon the child and return to the streets. Prison Lullabies addresses these issues by allowing the inmates to relate their own stories
