This story teaches us that innocence can lead to errors that are paid with years of exile from society. Twelve brave women whose love, deception, ignorance and fear, could not avoid their sentence, talk about their lives. They show us how is their life inside, their motivation to keep going, how they adapt to survive the terrors they live as women, how fragile freedom can be, and how hard it is to continue with their lives once they are once again set free to live outside.
