Alone in Four Walls

Alone in Four Walls

Everyone only sees criminals in them and forgets that they are children. They have stolen, committed assault, killed; all whilst still under fourteen years of age. 120 children are kept here, in a closed institution in the Urals. They would rather stay behind bars than be released to freedom. They no longer have to fight for existence every day; for the first time in their young lives they can be what they are: children. Children who never had a childhood. 91% of these children will end up back inside. This time in a prison for adults.
