The everyday life of inmates and guards at a juvenile prison in Mexico.

In a calmly observational style, the film portrays scenes from the daily life of the Comunidad San Fernando, a juvenile prison in Mexico City. We get to know a few of the prisoners through their matter-of-fact talks about how they landed in prison and what they plan to do when they get out. Meanwhile, preparations are under way for Christmas celebrations. The latest, crisply elegant, thought-provoking work by documentary master Thomas Heise (Consequence, EIFF 2013).
