Renata and Alexis are making a film together. She is a mesmerising and charismatic contributor, and happy to perform whenever Alexis comes to visit her, in the penitentiary she calls home. However, Renata is less inclined to discuss the murder which brought her there. A haunting and creative portrait of regret.
