Debut

Over 1500 women are detained in a Belarus prison for first-time offenders. Eleven of them have volunteered to take part in a theatre play. Their reasons vary: some see it as a small break from the tedium of prison life, some regard it as therapy, and others approach it as
a practice run for when they return to society. The rehearsals serve as the leitmotif for this balanced portrait that subtly frees these
women from the stigma of being criminals. The women talk as mothers, daughters and wives. They miss their families and wrestle with the
guilt of losing so many years behind bars. The director uses various techniques to present these women as three-dimensional characters.
