An extraordinary dramatic enquiry into what people do with their power and their pain.
Two women are in prison. Their crimes? Killing children. One woman is optimistic that she will be released. The other is consumed by a sense of injustice – for her, life probably means life. The women face each other, and the audience, with confessions that confront our attitudes towards crime and punishment.
