While helping her brother escape from prison, Antigone confronts the authorities: the police, the judicial and penal system as well as the father of her friend Haemon. The teenage girl, who had an uneventful life so far, feels the noose tighten on her. In the face of the law, she decides to substitutes her own sense of justice, dictated by love and loyalty.
