A female response to the borstal classic Scum, Scrubbers follows two girls who escape from an open youth prison. Annetta longs to see her daughter who is being cared for by a convent while Carol wants to be recaptured so she can return to the high security prison where her girlfriend is being held. Carol's wish comes true when she is apprehended and returned to custody, but her world is shattered when she finds out that her lover, Doreen, has found a new partner. Annetta is also recaptured and returned to the same nick, where she assumes that Carol ratted on her and plans on revenge.

Relentlessly downbeat but also extremely powerful, it features a great early turn by Cathy Burke (Kevin & Perry Go Large, This Years Love) and would form an effective if rather depressing double bill with the aforementioned Scum.

It's a crushing indictment of late 20th century youth custody.
