Condemned to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena cannot read not write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. He is 19 years old.

"Good movie. I liked this one quite much but now a week later I don't remember that much about it so i guess it was quite by the numbers-prison movie then too."
