5 episodes, 5 themes that show 5 areas and routes of detention in France: the arrival area, juvenile detention, women’s detention, the care unit and alternatives to incarceration.
No, in French prisons, there are no orange jumpsuits, no chains on the feet, and no large dining halls where meals are distributed. These clichés belong to American series and sensational reports. So, what does the daily life of our prisons look like? Who are the men and women detained in France? What is the reality of their detention?
