Summary

A nun who stole children, a whore disowned by her family, a Colombian woman sentenced for drug trafficking and a prison guard who wanted to be a dancer have something in common with Inma, the protagonist: the experience of prison and the unhappiness caused by those who pushed them to make the mistakes they did. There they are: chatting in the yard or lining up in the dining room. Different women come and go because prison is a transitory place, where routine and memories of an unfortunate past maintain an imposing presence. They seem just inmates, living each day the same. It takes a closer look to discover their splendid uniqueness.
