Detective Willy
 

Selected at Sundance, a winner at Guadalajara, this exceptionally powerful prison fiction is set in the Dominican prison of Najayo with real prisoners in all the roles except the leading characters. These are Julián and Yanelly, a male and a female prisoner who live a forbidden love through the prison bars, thanks to a sign language that could put them in danger.
