Sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting a policeman as he was arresting her drug dealer boyfriend, Ombline discovers she’s pregnant. Her boyfriend was accidently killed during the raid and she has no one to turn to—her mother is dead and her father is also incarcerated. Transferred to the maternity ward of the prison, Ombline gives birth to Little Lucas several months later. French law dictates that prisoners are only allowed to raise children born inside to the age of eighteen months, so when her son reaches that age, Ombline gives custody to a childhood friend. When the friend proves unreliable, the young mother agrees to allow Lucas to go to a foster family. She’s returned to the general population of the prison, where she has to serve the remainder of her sentence. In order to keep from losing her child forever, Ombline has to try to avoid the kind of trouble that got her jailed in the first place.
