In the decades of the 1960s and 1970s, the Tower of Maidens, inside the prison of Tiradentes in São Paulo, was a jail for political prisoners in the time of the military dictatorship in Brazil. The most famous of them, Dilma Roussef –who later would be president of her country from 2011 to 2016–, still remembers together with her former companions the abuses they were submitted to. In this film, Susanna Lira, known for her documentaries about human rights and violence in Brazil, leans on the stories by Dilma and other women to recreate this space, imprinting a female face to the history of a conflict in which the role of women is rarely taken into account.
