CGiii Comment

Beautifully written, fantastically directed.

Zara Dwinger had a vision and brought it to life...thanks to committed performances.

It's harsh and it's heartbreaking...and, it's an on-going problem!

The(ir) Blurb...

At first it seems like Yulia and Juliet are meeting in the school corridor, but then we notice the ventilation grilles in the image, through which the two lovers have to talk to each other. Yulia and Juliet are in prison. Worse still, Juliet will soon be released. But what will happen to Yulia? The emotionally charged drame takes a radical and brave turn. Zara Dwinger once again tells a brief, intense story about self-determined female protagonists.
