On the Outside: Episode 1: Abigail
On the Outside is the outcome of a collaborative film project involving Director Paul Gray and a group of women who were serving prison sentences in Scotland at the time.
The film is told in four episodes that recount the four women’s stories, in their exact spoken words that were constructed from audio recordings of discussions held in the prison, including song and poetry. The stories are recounted by four actors, and explore the women’s life experiences – including family life, drug abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, and their experience of being incarcerated – as well as their hopes for the future and the relationships and bonds that have formed between them.
