“Both jailed for life, Jack and Robert have been sharing the same cell for nearly twenty years. The cellmates existence has become a well-oiled but meaningless routine. Obstinately conscious that his life will end in that close cell, Robert cannot bear the situation anymore. Jack meanwhile seems to have accepted this life, but he has not lost hope that he will be released for good behavior. Marianne, their guard from the beginning of their incarceration, is the only woman in their exclusively masculine world.

Until one day, a day with a fierce storm, a day when they receive a visit from a woman…”
