Prison Weddings goes into the heart of the US prison wedding community where the ‘happy day’ involves a minefield of regulations from strict dress codes, to an x-ray machine and bullet-proof glass. The film follows three American brides who have decided to tie the knot while their other half is inside. In San Francisco eighteen-year-old Nancy prepares to marry her gang member boyfriend; in Ohio ex-convict Kristen is getting hitched to fiancé Jesse who is serving five years for armed robbery, and in Texas, April waits for news of the eighth appeal for the release of her childhood crush, and now husband, Shawn.
