Programs and challenges at the largest women's prison in the world

LIFE ON THE INSIDE takes viewers inside the largest women's prison in the world (the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla, CA) to explore the unique support groups, job training programs, and church services that help the prisoners rehabilitate themselves. Current and former prisoners, prison guards and staff, and volunteer counselors all participate on-camera to make this film a unique, behind-bars look at programs available to women in prison. The film does not advocate any particlar policies, but rather allows viewers to see and judge the activities for themselves.
