Synopsis

1500 women are serving their sentence in a penitentiary in Belarus. Long-term imprisonment fills women with dread to be forever separated from their families and get deprived of their vital support. For those who have children it is particularly unbearable. Rehearsals in prison theatre help women not to lose themselves. The premiere will take place at the Drama Theater. For convicts, this is a chance to appear in front of their relatives not as criminals. The play production process is a reason to search for answers to questions, about the cost of criminal misconduct and the expediency of long isolation.
