Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, Merxat break out of prison in new drama

Prison break action flick or inspirational female educational-attainment film? Either way, it’ll probably end up being mostly a romance.

In what looks like Prison Break meets Orange is the New Black,  Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, and  Merxat star in Republican-era  Please Give Me a Pair of Wings 请赐我一双翅膀.  There are two versions of the plot, both from very official sources, so I’m not sure which one is real, but one that the Baidu Baike and the trailer seem  to suggest the series features the female lead hanging out and eventually teaming up with other prisoners to break out of jail after being accused of murder while her friends try to clear her name from the outside.
