Murder and theft, drug dealing and addiction: young lives marked by traumatic stories lead several girls to this Iranian “Correctional and Rehabilitation Centre”. Some of them feel more at home in prison than they did with their families. A rare glimpse inside a lockedup world. A respectful portrait of young women struggling to recapture some sense of personal dignity. A truly original and captivating look into modern Iran.
