The female inmates at Oklahoma’s State Penitentiary risk life and limb as they train for the Prison Rodeo; one of the last of its kind. Both a liberating time-out from prison monotony and a stomach-churning adrenaline-trip, the Rodeo is also a test of self-belief and physical mettle. Taking more courage to grasp than any bull’s horns, it’s this that finally carries these strong but damaged women back to life on the outside. Smashing through the old divides between documentary and fiction drama, 'Sweethearts...' is a story of gladiatorial desperation and hope, tied up with one whole lot of Oklhahoman heart – Hell yeah!.
