Synopsis

About 130 men, mainly condemned for intra-familial sexual abuse, are incarcerated in the Casabianda Detention Center in Corsica. They are spending the last years of their long sentences working on the 1500 hectares of seaside fields, in France’s only ‘open’ prison. Faced with the young man with the movie camera, a few of them decide to break the fourth wall.
