Jailbird

Jailbird

In order to save the man she loves from jail, Mathilde takes his place by helping his break-out.
While she exclusively relies on him to survive in this prison setting, Mathilde has not heard from him since her imprisonment.
Isolated, only supported by her son, she is now identified by the inmate number 383205-B.
Will Mathilde become a convict like any other one?

« My goal is to paint the portrait of a contemporary woman and to question her place in our society, without ever leaving the closed gates of the penitentiary. More than a criticism of the deviant prison system, the human issue has to prevail.»
Audrey Estrougo
