Visiting day. Lindalva prepares food to take to her son in jail. Metruti shaves and wears the best clothes to welcome his mother. Today is a very special day and he really needs to make a phone call. His mother is taking the risk to smuggle a cell phone for him into the penitentiary…

Our take

The space of a jail is portrayed with gritty yet striking aesthetics in this Brazilian short film, from which shines the bright humanism that lies at its core. The Factory depicts the relationship between a mother and son, and the intricate machinations needed to provide justice within the prison.
