Summary
This documentary visits Gatesville Penitentiary in Texas, where three female inmates convicted of murder and serving sentences ranging from 25 to 40 years describe the domestic violence that would eventually bring them to prison. Sonia, Brenda and Lee Ann relate in their own words stories of the isolation and fear that bound them to their threatening husbands. From their stories, a pattern of violence emerges, creating, in effect, a portrait of family violence in America today. Combined with analysis by experts on domestic violence and the law, this film shows the difficulties victims of abuse have escaping the cycle of violence. It challenges our attitudes towards the victim who acts in violent self-defense
