Poena is a feature documentary based on the life of Raquel, a Spanish woman who committed suicide after 9 months in solitary confinement. As the film goes further into comparing Southern and Nordic countries, a hidden tragedy is revealed: the European system not only forces people with mental disorders to be in isolation, but also deprives them of the necessary treatment.
