Miss Gulag

Documentary series. Every spring, staff at women's prison UF 91-9, Siberia, organise a beauty pageant to lift spirits and help inmates win time off for good behaviour. Natasha, who directed the competition when she was an inmate, returns to support the contestants, but with no job or prospects, what can she say about life on the outside? Is this why Russia's rate of female incarceration is five times higher than Britain's?
