Julia, a 25 year-old university student, two weeks pregnant, with no criminal record, is sent to prison. Julia murdered the father of her child. This story addresses maternity, jail and Justice; confinement, guilt and solitude; but above all it deals with Julia and her son, Tomas, born inside an Argentinean prison. —Anonymous
Raw with a Strong Point of View
Shot inside a prison in Argentina with actual prisoners as extras, this film is raw and the viewer is trusted to endure the harsh realities of women and children in this environment. Martina Gusman is excellent! There are times where the pacing of the film seems to meander, but this is bold filmmaking and the story is excellent. It is heartbreaking to see how poorly the legal system works and the injustice so many women face. This is a real story about a forgotten population and it is told well.
