Prison Families

Every family has a story. Be it behind closed doors, or behind bars. In TV3's groundbreaking new series, cameras go behind closed doors to reveal the hidden world of prison families, as we follow ten New Zealand families, each living with a loved one in prison. A fascinating insight into the stories behind the headlines and the families dealing with the aftermath of crime. Filmed over six months, each episode documents a different family's incredible story. From a family fighting the stigma of their notorious crime-boss uncle, to a suburban housewife picking up the pieces after her husband is locked up for stealing millions. These are ten families from ten very different walks of life.
