SEASON 1: It is Bea Smith's first day at Wentworth Correctional Facility. Instantly thrown into a strange and violent new world of female prisoners where lesbian top dog Franky vies for power with Jacs Holt, the ruthless matriarch of a crime family, it seems like she isn't going to last long. This gripping drama follows Bea and how she copes being separated from both the outside world and more importantly, her very precious daughter Debbie.
SEASON 2: The story picks up three months after Bea killed Jacs Holt. While Bea has been languishing in the slot, Franky has risen to top dog unopposed. But the sudden arrival of new governor Joan Ferguson is about to change all that. Ferguson's mandate is to clean up Wentworth and restore order, at any cost, to the inmates and her staff.
