Most incarcerated women are mothers. So what becomes of their children? Do they experience separation in the same way in Nepal, Canada, Bolivia and New York? This documentary is seen from the children's point of view: they are so often forgotten, invisible, and they bear the scars all their lives, whether or not they receive help. A heartbreaking journey.
