Storyline

Madrid, 1974. Former women's jail of Yeserias. Lucia, a girl well situated in society, is condemned to spend ten years in jail due to her relation with a politic militant against Franco's dictatorship. While being in prison she lives with every kind of woman: intelectuals, killers, illiterates, ... All of them must share food, living space, joys and pities; joined by the same fate, lack of freedom, they will have to fight together against desperation. Lucia is willing o live, to learn form that world the fate has given to her where, on the contrary to what she imagines, tenderness and laugh exist. And also the complicity and solidarity of some women living an experience which will mark them for ever. Written by <oscar.esteban@p4.virtual.encomix.com>

A watchable film
20 August 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a girl that find herself in jail due to be the girlfriend of a communist guy in Spain when Franco is still alive and just before democracy arrived to Spain.The girl finds in jail diverse types of women. It's the first movie of Azucena Rodriguez and of course it have its flaws , still is worthy the time spend on it cause some of Spain's good actresses appear like Pilar Bardem , Ana Torrent, Penelope Cruz , Cristina Marcos and specially Maria Pujalte that makes a very good job in their roles . There are guest appearances of very fine Spanish actors like Carmelo Gomez and Karra Ejalde .I think this is not a great movie but it is a decent movie and I think it gives information about what really meant to live in that time and age around 1974 in Spain.
