Julia wakes up in her apartment, surrounded by the bloodshed bodies of two men. One of them is still alive; both have been, obscure and simultaneously, her lovers, and one of them made Julia pregnant. The young woman is sent to a prison housing mothers and pregnant inmates. There she spends her first days absorbed and aloof. She hates to be a mother in this situation. The child is born, Tomás, a boy. Bringing up a child in prison is difficult and annoying. This just happened against her will. But more and more, Julia feels this boy is her only valued one left. After several years in prison, Julia, grown accustomed to the prison environment, has become hard: a woman who must struggle to recover her freedom as well as that of her son.
