Plot Synopsis

FIRST WEEK IN follows inmates in the moments leading up to their incarceration, focusing on those who have been arrested for the very first time -- for crimes ranging from drug charges to cases of domestic violence and even kidnapping. These inmates cope with their environments, desperately contemplate ways to leave and post bail, and, at times, vow to change their lives for the better. Cameras follow their every move -- from their initial intake to their interaction and confrontations with violent offenders to their desperate attempts to make a phone call.
