Alberto Sarlo, a lawyer and writer, carries out a utopian project: teaching philosophy, literature and boxing to 52 prisoners. The inmates speak of Hegel, Sartre, Dostoyevsky, of the superman, and they write short stories in which they lay bare their souls and narrate some of their experiences in jail. Philosophy helps them to rethink their lives, their destinies and their decisions.
Carlos “Kongo” Mena, an inmate who was recently released, returns to the prison as his assistant. For many of them, he is the living image of possible redemption. Culture and determination have made a new man of Carlos.

Directed by Diego Gachassin
