Each one-hour episode focuses on a different existing “behind bars” program in the U.S. that follows four teens as they enter intensive one-day “incarceration” sessions that show them the consequences of bad choices and criminal behavior. This season a 13-year-old realizes she may be pregnant by the 20-year-old boyfriend she met online; two teens unexpectedly encounter family members behind bars; the program pays a visit to the county morgue and at the end of the day the teens must convince the deputies that they are worthy of leaving jail.
