As their futures tick away, four women on a Texas Death Unit confront their pasts, their fears, and each other, all the while under the “electronic eye” of Correctional Supervisor Rowena Way who simultaneously maintains tight security over each and every plastic fork. Sometimes comedy and sometimes painfully provocative, In the Goldfish Bowl explores the justice system through inmates Phylis Penn PhD, Shawna Devine, Sylvia Washington and Cherry Pie Muldoon .
Will Oprah Winfrey rescue Cherry Pie? Will Shawna Devine get a new trial? Why does Sylvia want to be moved ahead on the death list? And will Phylis Penn come to terms with who she is, what she’s done and in her short time left, recognize how she has changed?
