Bulaklak sa City Jail (1984)

Angela, a nightclub singer, is plunged into an affair with a married man. She finds herself in the city jail on a charge of frustrated murder filed by her lover's wife. She soon discovers that prison is the place where the most vicious elements of the city are housed together, and that in the women's quarters, all sorts of physical and sexual abuses take place. When she finds out that she is pregnant, she falls prey to bureaucratic imbroglio on the matter of the custody of her baby. She manages to escape and gives birth inside the city zoo while being pursued by the authorities. She is arrested and promptly sent back to prison. After legal deliberations, the court grants her temporary custody of her child, and when her case is reopened, she is allowed to go out on probation. With her child, Angela gets a new lease on life.
