The story of a group of women political prisoners who occupied a wing in Tiradentes prison in the 70s. 40 years later, these women (Dilma Rousseff's former cellmates) break the silence and reveal how they lived together in prison under the military dictatorship, tackling not only political issues such as the history of democracy in Brazil but also the role of women as militants.
