Nigel and Earlonne visit the largest women’s prison in the world, the Central California Women’s Facility, and speak to five people about building a life in a tough environment, and calling that place home.

Guim’Mara Berry at San Quentin State Prison, and Acting Warden Molly Hill and Lt. William Newborg at the California Institution for Women for their support of the show.
