'scrubbers'

Annetta and Carol - when they broke out of Borstal they were friends. But now they're caught, back inside, sent to the tough, closed Borstal - it's different. Annetta thinks Carol's betrayed her - and she's going to get her brutal revenge.

SCRUBBERS is a glimpse into a closed world - the violence, the hopelessness, the uneasy alliances between the inmates, built on love and lust and fear. But SCRUBBERS also captures the unique affinity that exists between the prisoners, the rough, bawdy humour that helps them endure the desperate life behind prison bars.
