Eight inmates serving long prison sentences discuss their crimes, their isolation, and their aspirations. The film’s stark visual aesthetic focuses on the essential, employing a classic documentary style to highlight the inmates’ powerful testimonials, collected in an intimate setting. The film then leaps into moments of fantasy, projecting the inmates onto digital canvases that depict universes of their own creation, bringing a whole other dimension to the film.
