We can tell that this is more than just a show; it's a picture of a situation in real life, filled with love, sincere friendships, care, sadness, forgiveness, and strength. This isn't another story about a female prison; it's much more than that. It'll surprise you how much you'll regret why you didn't give it a chance earlier.
