Linda Blair plays Chris Carlson, a U.S. college student who gets thrown in an East German women's prison when she happens to be found with a defector. She's in Germany to meet her U.S. serviceman fiance, and when he finally figures out where she is, he organizes a commando rescue squad to free her. Prison scenes show a dreary prison life where everything's forbidden and survival is the top priority for most inmates. Sylvia Kristel plays a tough and hardened inmate who rules the prison roost. ~ Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sort of distaff 'Midnight Express,' the movie takes itself seriously, even when Linda Blair tells her East German accuser: 'I'm an American college student from York, Pennsylvania -- can't you get that straight, you douche bag?'"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
