Babies Behind Bars (2011)

Two-part documentary following a group of pregnant inmates at Indiana Women's Prison. Inmates are often forced to give up their babies just 24 hours after giving birth, but this prison has a pioneering and controversial baby wing, where a select few are allowed to keep their babies behind bars. The film uses powerful personal stories to pose poignant questions about how the American criminal justice system deals with pregnant prisoners and their innocent babies. Can the bond between mother and child survive the harsh realities of life behind bars?
