    Certificate: 18
    Running Time: 83 mins

    Release Date:

    A genre all by herself, Pam Grier tackles - and shackles - herself to the role of the feistier half of a pair of women in chains and on the run in this colourful, outrageous and exciting flick (which Jonathan Demme helped contribute the storyline to). Grier is Lee Daniels, a prostitute doing hard time in an island prison camp for women where the guards have a new way to punish inmates who fight: by chaining them together!

    Chained to her bitter rival, white revolutionary Karen (Margaret Markov), Lee finds herself literally linked to the revolutionary cause - and on the fly - when Karen`s guerilla friends stage a coup! But this foxy inmate`s got a cause of her own in the form of a secret stash of cold, hard cash and a getaway boat! Brawling with her white counterpart over which way to go, and tracked like a dog by guards, guerillas and a gangster after the loot, she`s gotta make her escape - before both mama`s enemies bring them down for good!
