Thirty years ago in Yeserias, the former Madrid women´s prison,  a civil servant and graduate from Drama School named Elena Cánovas founded Teatro Yeses, a drama company for consisting of female inmates. This is the story of their journey. And it is  as well a meditation on the therapeutic and liberating character of drama, whose practice has helped women to get in touch with their emotions.
