Dreams of glamour from behind prison walls


1 episode x 15mins

Bella is a young transsexual who dreams of glamour from behind prison walls – in a world without women, Bella is Queen.

Bella’s tattooing skills and sharp wit allow her to survive amongst the male inmates, but her determination to behave and look like a woman makes her a target for prison-officer Goff.

When Goff attempts to destroy her dreams, Bella takes a courageous stand.
