Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo

A moving, compassionate film following the women from the Eddie Warriors Correctional Center as they compete in a closed-doors prison rodeo against inmates from nine all-male penitentiaries.

Prisoners compete on wild broncos and bucking bulls, risking life-long injuries.

Danny Liles, a 14-year veteran of the rodeo, mentors the women, who include Jamie Brooks, serving 30 years for murder, and Brandy Witte, serving 20 years for firearm possession and drugs dealing.

For them and their fellow inmates, the chance to battle livestock offers a brief respite from prison life as they become the heroes the public and guards applaud.
