London, 1841. The Rajah sails for Australia.

On board are 180 women convicted of petty crimes. Daughters, sisters, mothers - they'll never see home or family again. Despised and damned, they have only one another.

Until the murder. As the fearful hunt for a killer begins, everyone on board is a suspect . .

. Based on a real-life voyage, Dangerous Women is a sweeping tale of confinement, hope and the terrible things we do to survive.
