After two documentaries on the penal system and the effects of punishment, writer-director Chiara Fleischhacker focuses in her diploma film on the marginal group of pregnant prisoners to give a true-to-life insight into this world and portray the emotional consequences for the women.
Jenny only trusts her boyfriend Bolle. They not only share the high of crystal meth, but also the ambivalent anticipation of having a baby. When midwife Marie enters her life, Jenny faces her fears and experiences an emotional bond with her daughter for the first time – and a sense of self-determination. She promises her baby to never let her go. But this decision is no longer hers.
