A young, female prison guard, works in a hopelessly overcrowded jail in Madagascar. Her observations of the realities of prison life interlace with her daydreams about her unknown father. Secretly hoping that one day her father will be washed up as a prisoner, she bypasses time by imagining his criminal career. Her prison routine is suddenly torn apart when a new inmate arrives who claims to know her father.
