In 2008, an interactive theatre group presents two performances, in two cities in Syria: Quameshly and Hassakeh. Whilst touring the cities, the theatre group dealt with taboo issues and controversial subject matter, such as gender equality, stimulating discussion and debate in the audiences. At the end of their tour, and in the second half of this documentary, they visited a jail where they encouraged prisoners to recount their stories and feelings about incarceration into a play The film watches the prisoners discuss the ways in which jail has transformed them and how working through a dramatic production has created a framework for them to express these feelings.
