Trenchant documentary immerses the viewer in the world of three juvenile delinquents. Grappling with enforced rules and compulsory therapy, they have to reinvent themselves in youth detention.

This documentary follows three juvenile delinquents who are forced to reinvent themselves. The world of strenuous therapy, re-education, disciplinary regimens and ever imminent paroxysms, seen from the young detainees’ perspective. At night, alone in their cells, they are given a camera and there is room for personal outpourings. Not just their anger or feelings of guilt and despair, but also their intimate and even poetic moments.
