About "Wentworth": Drugs, blackmail and violence are part of everyday life in Wentworth Women's Prison. The fight for survival in the Knasthierarchie is tough: In order to save her sister Ruby (Rarriwuy Hick) from bloody revenge, undercover policewoman Rita (Leah Purcell) Zara (Natalia Novikova) brutally slain. Now there's no turning back for Rita: she's a prisoner in Wentworth like everyone else. Should her fellow inmate Marie (Susie Porter) learn that Ruby is responsible for the death of Marie's son, the prison is facing a war. And Marie is after the extension of her prison sentence everything to expand their power position in jail. Meanwhile, the former secret ruler Kaz (Tammy Macintosh) loses more and more grip. Meanwhile, inmate Liz's (Celia Ireland) dementia is getting worse every day. Increasingly disoriented, she relies on the care and help of her fellow prisoners. They are unscrupulous, brutal, shameless and insidious, their daily lives behind bars a cruel struggle for survival. Rarely does one see women on TV so unadorned and from their darkest side as in "Wentworth". The Australian prison drama draws profound female figures who are capable of anything in their extreme situation. Accordingly unpredictable is the plot, which differs from the original "Prisoner Cell Block H" (1979-1986). Since its launch in 2013, "Wentworth" has won the Australian ASTRA Award for best drama series twice in a row. Although the hit series was originally scheduled to end after season seven, it's being extended for an eighth and ninth season for its great success.
