In Bolivia, Nepal, New York and Montreal, prison seen from the point of view of the inmates’ children. It’s a particularly distressing fact of life that most female prisoners are also mothers. When a woman is incarcerated, her child either suffers a gut-wrenching separation or joins her behind bars. What is the daily reality of these children, bereft of their mothers, and what rights do they have? Taking on the role of documentarian, Léa Pool delivers four harrowing, intertwined portraits.
