A Mother from the World of Shadows
In the period of 9 months visiting the Rusca prison, we read the poems written by women on Valentine's Day, sang songs about mothers on 8th of March, prayed together on Eastern Night, cried on the 1st of June, the "Open Gate" day, when children came or didn't come to visit them… we ate, we worked and we contemplated together with the convicted women.
