“I didn’t even think that they would give me 8 years for THIS.” More than half of all women in Russian colonies are imprisoned for drugs. Article 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation has become “female folk”, it is about easy money with serious consequences. The four protagonists of the film tell their stories about lost youth, feelings of shame, life behind bars and even a prison wedding.
