A Woman's Place

Synopsis

Behind the Khojand hills of Tadzjikistan stands State Prison 3/13 UIP RT. A women’s prison, more than half of whose inmates are entirely innocent. They have assumed the guilt for crimes committed by their husbands or sons and have been sentenced in their place. The women’s prison in Khojand, its staff and inmates, are typical situation prevailing in Tadjikistan. This is a country that has long been wracked by civil war and has become a haven for dubious practices. A country where wealth determines the course of justice.
