But her punishment provides an opportunity to escape, along with six other female prisoners. Their surreal flight from prison pitsthe convicts against the guards, the warden, and each other.
Based on a classic manga by Tooru Shinohara this 2008 Japanese release is fashioned after the popular Toei-produced vengeance flicks of the 1970s.
