An innocent girl goes to jail on a bum rap in this minor exploitation effort. Rita (Christina Whitaker) is an escaped convict who is picked up by a cocaine addict, Willy (John Terlesky). After she clubs a cop and shoots the counterman in a diner, they decide they have a lot in common, so

they embark on a life of crime, starting with the bank where Willy's ex-wife, Michelle (Shari Shattuck), works. The robbery goes badly, a guard is killed, and Michelle ends up arrested. Rita lies in court and Michelle finds herself in the classic exploitation predicament--in prison.

Women-in-prison films occupy a special niche in the canon of exploitation films. They have everything their audiences want: women taking showers, women fighting each other, women having sex with guards, women having sex with each other, crime, guns, usually a car chase, and an innocent girl,

framed and locked in these awful hellholes. The good points here include slightly better than average acting, and some well-constructed sequences.
