SYNOPSIS

Barbara is a filmmaker who has been working within the prison system for several years. She is making a film that is being both written and performed by long-term inmates of a prison in a Paris suburb.

Barbara visits the prison twice a week, where she is conducting a series of interviews with the inmates that will form the basis of the screenplay.
