Film details

Cast & Credits


A young sociology lecturer is writing a thesis on woman offenders and in the course of his researches he comes across an out-of-the-ordinary prisoner, who recounts her story with such unrepentant verve and total lack of self-consciousness that he is completely taken aback and, just for a moment, is shaken out of his polite attitude.
