A film by Marie Drucker

DOCUMENTARY / 60' / FRANCE 2 / 2015


There are few women in French prisons, but most were sent there for serious offenses or violent crimes. They transgressed the limits of behavior expected from women, sisters and mothers. They did inexcusable things and are now serving heavy sentences, but they remain nonetheless women. For the very first time, female inmates let us take a close-up look at their daily lives, over a period of several months. They gradually open up about life behind bars, the crimes they committed and what freedom means to them.
