The Sleeping Voice
Madrid, 1940. A women's prison in Ventas. General Franco and his army have seized power. The winners are not satisfied with their victory; they want to exterminate their enemy. Every man and woman who was part of, or supported, the Resistance, or who is just suspected of it, will be hunted down and eradicated without mercy. Repression has become part of life. All of Spain is a prison. The women's prison in Ventas was filled with prisoners of this kind. Women who fought for freedom were now suffering repression, torture and death.
Our story deals with the life of these prisoners.
A group of women sharing a terrible fate.
