A shy woman receives a parcel that was sent earlier to her husband in prison. The imprisonment itself is not fair either. So, grabbing the returned box, Lagidna goes to the prison town on a difficult search for the truth. The town greets her with bureaucratic absurdity, criminal rituals, and bad dreams.
