Rigel, Batanay and Giovanni, 16 and 17 years old, are in juvenile detention for violent robberies. Through their eyes, the documentary shows the different attempts by 'the system' to make them think and act differently. We follow the trio in detention and in the six months after their release. What choices do the boys make - and why? Will they stay out of trouble this time, now that they are almost grown-ups?
