A Peek at the story


"Sometimes I feel like I have walked into the middle of a movie. It is a strange movie with no plot and no beginning. The movie is in black and white, and grainy. Sometimes the camera moves in so close that you can't tell what is going on and you just listen to the sounds and guess. I have seen movies of prisons but never one like this. This is not a movie about bars and locked doors. It is about being alone when you are not really alone and about being scared all the time...I wish I could make sense of it. Maybe I could make my own movie. I could write it out and play it in my head...I'll write it down in the notebook they let me keep. I'll call it what the lady who is the prosecutor called me.
