SYNOPSIS:


Takhar Prison. 40 women. 34 children. Four cells. No burqas. This documentary takes viewers inside one of the world’s most restricted environments: an Afghan women’s prison. Through the prisoners’ own stories we explore how ‘moral crimes’ are used to control women. Sima, married at ten, is locked away with her five children for 15 years. Her crime? Fleeing from an abusive husband, who already murdered one of his other wife’s.
