In a penitentiary unit, over 200 women live imprisoned; many are mothers with their babies, foreigners and lonely women. Therein, the story of three main characters, three female inmates, three poets, is told. Lidia is the mother of Abril, who was born in prison. During the documentary, she attains her freedom. Majo is a Spaniard, mother of 5 children with whom she cannot have any contact during her sentence. When she serves half of her time, she will be expelled to her country of origin. Liliana is alone, her father, only relative, is also in jail. He has a long sentence to serve. The documentary explores the liberating capacity of the poetic word, the power of art from a reclusive space. The poetry transforms their realities, questions their past, and reinvents a future world. The main characters also participate in a Photography Workshop where, when portraying themselves, they gain back the power of perspective, rendering visibility to their hidden lives. Life stories blend into a daily routine of contrasts between life in prison and poetics, until they reach the final phase of freedom.
