Thief's wife

by Manon Kleynjans


In Brazil, every week, inmates' wives travel hundreds of miles to go to the prisons and spend there a part of the weekend.
For two days, prisoners and their family move freely in the prison. Husbands and wives meet for "intimate encounters" in the cells rearranged for the occasion.
