Sentenced for Life

Hardly anyone in the Netherlands is aware that a life sentence in Holland literally means a whole life of imprisonment. In this documentary Carin Goeijers examines the married life of Louis Hagemann, serving a life sentence, and his wife Jacqueline. Louis was convicted for a double murder in 2005. In this film we slowly discover the essence of the couple’s unconditional love. How will their relationship survive this stagnant and hopeless situation?
