Tensions build in Georgia’s Smith State Prison when a cell floods and angry prisoners must evacuate. Witness how women at Lee Arrendale State Prison cope with life in jail and the sometimes strange changes in state of mind they undergo as a way to cope with serving time. Meet the female offenders housed at Metro State Prison in Atlanta. From a straight “A” student turned druggie to murderers serving life terms, these women have seen and experienced the worst. Drugs, crime and violence are among the daily pressures of doing time at Smith State, one of the toughest prisons in Georgia.
“Hard Time” is an exclusive, groundbreaking documentary series that takes a look behind the scenes of US high security prisons and immerses viewers in the brutality of life there. Prisoners, guards, wardens, families – these are stories full of desperation and hope, truth and consequence. In season 1 we accompany new prisoners and young prison guards in training. Season 2 takes us on a year-long journey behind bars in an Ohio prison, where respect is hard-earned, violence is a constant threat, and reparation is hard to come by. “This is World War III, and we fight it every day,” says a bitter prison guard in Season 3, which takes us to two notorious state prisons in Georgia, one of which is an all-woman prison. By focusing on a small number of inmates and guards in each episode, the series spans a strong and often heartbreaking web of lost souls.
