Sinopsis / Synopsis:

On October 4th, 2007 Arantza, the director of the film, was detained and taken to prison. She remembers a few things about those days: endlessly walking around the prison exercise yard, swimming competitions, Rasha’s prison journey. After 918 nights locked up, Arantza is set free. From then onwards, she recorded her memories and doubts, which are heard throughout the documentary as a kind of fragmented memoir.

Historian, filmmaker and independent researcher, Arantza studied Creative Documentary Making, and has directed films such as Passatgeres (2012) and Euritan (2017).
