Prison Without Bars tells the story of a girls' reformatory and what happens when a new superintendent comes to change the harshness of the old regime. Jill Esmond is playing this part, and Sebastian Shaw that of the young doctor with whom Nova Pilbeam, as one of the reformatory's occupantats, falls in love.
