Three women imprisoned in the Ghent City Jail tell their stories. But far more than being confronted with detainees, we get to know them as true human beings. They get the time that is necessary to really get to know someone. Without any frills, straightforward. A film about the ambiguity of intimacy, about the distance of three women who have to continue their lives behind bars. 'When I look into the mirror, I don't find that I look anything like my criminal record,' tells one of the three women. That confrontation is important: trying to get as close to these people as possible, and to put someone's prejudices at stake.
