Special Features: Q&A with actor Jean Jean, plus post-screening party and DJ,
sponsored by Kesta Happening DC

Tall, dark and handsome, Julián (Jean Jean) steps off a bus and becomes fresh meat walking inside the Najayo Prison in the Dominican Republic. He locates his cellblock underneath the corner where the "woodpeckers" perch. Woodpeckers — prisoners who romance ladies incarcerated at the women's prison 150 meters away — spend their days in affectionate conversation with their lovers via sign language. When Julián encounters Yanelly (Judith Rodriguez Perez), he is smitten. Now he must find a way, through cement, barbed wire, dozens of guards and murderous exes, to win Yanelly's love, all while keeping it secret. (Note adapted from Sundance Film Festival.)
