The main characters of this documentary are women engaged in relationships with recidivists. They love the prisoners, miss them, write letters to them, visit them, want to have kids and marry them even though they realize that their future husbands will stay in prison for long. Why do they involve themselves in such a difficult relationship? Although they face breakups and returns, go through hell, lose their mind, they do not give up. The women shown in this documentary turn for help to a psychologist called Anna who is in such a relationship herself. She speaks about it openly. She has just made such a choice and does not regret it, although sometimes it gets really difficult.
