ABRÁZAME is a window into the world of children who are growing up, living inside a Bolivian prison with their mothers. Six year old Jhosselyn and her friends leave the prison on the school bus each day and escape from their reality through their games and imaginations. The film explores the way children process their lives, and predicts the dangers that are lurking for them around the corner.
