Plot synopsis
Prison, as we know, is a place where the people are deprived of freedom. The prison ìWhite Swanî ñ well known in folklore ñ is a place where the depravation of freedom takes the most radical form. But even here we cannot talk about the depravation of inner freedom, especially the freedom of emotions.
The prisoner Yura is interested in the prisoner Natasha. And the prisoner Natasha is fascinated by the prisoner Sasha, and takes part in the prisonersí amateur entertainment programme. She hopes to be absolutely free one day and have children. No prison can deprive man of the freedom to hope.
