A fictional research team, presented as narrators, reopens four cases of women convicted of murdering their husbands. The argument expands to question the discourse of violence and counter-violence in our contemporary society, basic crime punishment notions and the development of state disciplinary strategies. This essay film moves freely in place and time shifting between prison interviews, archival, and original footage.
