    • Synopsis
    • Andrea chooses her wedding dress. Kamila prepares for her first conjugal visit to her boyfriend. Simone suffers with a companion addicted to crack. Eliane expects her lover, 22 years younger, to behave well. Malu was reunited with the father of her daughter ten years later, but does not have the right to live with him. Camila can’t live her pregnancy alongside her husband. Cida has suffered a serious disappointment with the man she was in love with. Love stories like so many others, but lived among women and prisoners, in the midst of the many limitations and the hope of one day starting a family outside. The film investigates how these marriages work, what they are able to build or destroy in their lives. Through emotional confidences, letters lovingly decorated and a privileged access to the intimacy of the couples, this universe of free women who remain captive outside in the name of love is revealed.
