1 hour and 22 minutes


Alejandro, condamned to a life sentence and head of 2,300 inmates, tells us about Iwahig, a prison without bars where prisoners can live with their families.

He plunges us into this universe through the portraits of a few fellow prisoners: Toting who goes fishing on the open sea without a guard tells us about his past. Denelyn and Jenelyns, two adolescents whose father is serving a life sentence and are trying to help the family survive. Rodrigo, a young inmate beaten by a prison employee... A prison system unique to this world, founded more than a century ago in the Philippines, Iwahig opens up new horizons.
