Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here's the set-up:
When Leslie Nelson, a naive, small town girl, got a job as a prison guard, her friends called her a female Barney Fife. But that job turned out to be a unique on-the-job training for motherhood. This non-fiction short will take you inside the prison and share tips on how to avoid riots in your own home. Leslie is the mother of five children (three teenagers, heaven help her!). Her youngest is seven so "parole" is a long way off.
