Holloway: The Young Ones

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 there lies a darker side to their lives. Disturbing scenes of women whose distress makes them self-harm – and in some cases, drives the desire to cut short their young lives.
