    Today as tomorrow and as yesterday. Four women, who have been sterilized and are under constant toxic restraint and surveillance, are serving their term in a government-run brothel.

Nothing on the outside exists any more. Nightmarish visions, simulated miscarriages and rapes, injections and nausea all make up their daily routine. Yet their dream – even though they have been sterilized by the State – is to have a child. One day, one of their customers disappears. The interrogations begin.Read More »
