Five girls under 18 are in a youth correctional facility. Three of them killed their fathers with the help of their mothers, who are in prison awaiting execution. We follow the story of these girls and their mothers. We look into their past and at the reasons for killing their fathers, as we witness their daily lives behind bars.

This film will only be available in Docs for Sale on November 21, after its World Premiere.
