The musical composition, The Prison Mother’s Lullaby by Kaija Maarika Penttala from 2010 was the starting point of the piece. Penttala had composed it after reading an article about Finnish female prisoners who serve their sentence in primitive circumstances imprisoned with their child. By Penttala’s request Marjo Levlin made the video work to the theme and music. After researching and getting involved in the subject, an experimental, poetic weave came into being, a symbolistic piece springing out of the theme.
