Meet the youngest generation of jailbirds:  they are the new girl gangs,  increasingly violent young women locked up for fighting with their fists,  arming themselves with knives and bottles.  But for the young offenders of Holloway,  prison can easily come to represent home and amid the boarding school-type pranks on the wing,  lies a darker  side to their lives.  Disturbing scenes of women whose distress makes them self-harm  –  and in some cases, makes them want to cut short their young lives.  

The film drew 3.9million viewers with a 16.7 per cent share of the audience.
