– O kai jau susitiksime išėję, laisvėje, kur norėtum nukeliauti?

– Į Ibisą.

Very intense and realistic - that's how Italian film critics define this film about a complicated love story of two adolescents. Daphne (by Daphne Scoccia) arrested for stealing, falls in love with Josh (by Josciua Algeri), a young robber. They see each other through the barred windows and prison fences, and exchange clandestine notes. The prison for them becomes more than just a place that constrains their freedom. The director of the film manages to sensitively and respectfully depict this complex relationship  in this difficult period of life - adolescence, emphasizing that it is love that keeps the two lovers holding on to life. The script of the film was written together with the main characters of the film, based on real-life stories of the young from a juvenile colony.
