This is the story of a man and a woman in Albania. Their two partners are both in custody, but reforms in the penal system allow married couples to meet once a month for sexual contact. At first the film spins these two narrative threads alongside each other and then ties them together artfully. The two meet by chance in the prison and start a tender love affair that looks set to end when their partners are freed in an amnesty. The film depicts the life of its protagonists in today’s Albania, which is marked by unemployment, economic hardship and patriarchal structures.
