Behind Bars: Women Inside is an intimate and in-depth look at what it's like to be a woman incarcerated in an American jail. With some 200 inmates, the series goes behind the walls of the Western Massachusetts Regional Women's Correctional Center and explores the reality of life when orange really is the new black. These mothers, daughters, grandmothers and sisters re also gangbangers, murderers, drug smugglers and armed robbers.

Notorious gang banger Baby D. considers herself to be prison Top Dog, with the ability to place hits on fellow prisoners. She's set her sights on Krystal from a rival gang--will the guards be able to keep her safe? And 8-month pregnant Vanessa, addicted to heroin, has already lost custody of her other children and if she gives birth in jail, she'll lose this baby too. Desperate to secure a place on a drug rehabilitation program, will she get out of jail in time?
