Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) barely remembers the person she was 10 years ago -- the person who was so in love with her intoxicating girlfriend she was willing to transport a suitcase full of drug money for her. But the law has a long memory. And now, in ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, Chapman starts her 15-month sentence in a womens prison to pay for her crime. Shes terrified; but her fiance Larry (Jason Biggs) urges her to see it as an adventure; hell wait for her. And so she dons her blue prison shoes ("Theyre like Toms!" Chapman dopily tells the officer checking her in) and her orange prison jumpsuit, and starts learning the ropes in prison. Chapman makes a lot of mistakes, but the funny thing is that as many people who are ready to take advantage of her, there are numbers on the other side ready to help her.
