The film was made as a project of the film workshop held in Lepoglava Correctional Facility in 2008. The testimony of an inmate, former drug addict, illustrate the connection between addiction as a life style and crime, resulting in inevitable incarceration. Tinčo, the main (an only) character in the film, desscribes how he entered the world of drugs and, consequently, crime. He openly talks about fellonies he has committed, which put him in Lepoglava for ten years. In 25 minutes of the film, Tinčo tells us about the daily routine in the prison, the position of addicts in the inmate hierarchy, sex life in prison and chances for a change.
