The first of three deliberately campy, women-in-prison sexploitation pictures is set on a tropical Pacific Island. At the raggedy Prison del Inferno, 150 scantily clad, beautiful young women live as inmates. They are overseen by the sadistic female warden, Lucian. When a group of them try to escape, they use guns, attitude and sexuality to free themselves. The film proved to be the breakthrough for Grier.
