    The Lonely Go First

    After 25 years, Kate walks out of prison. She tries to stick to the values of her youth in spite of the fact that the world outside has changed. She finds Martin. During her spell in prison she did not betray him, although by doing so she would get her ticket to freedom. Martin tries to make amends but all he wants to and can offer her is money.

    It dawns on Kate that she is unable to overcome her loneliness. It is ridiculous to rebel against a contemporary world. Atoning for one’s wrongdoing is impossible. All she is left with is an opportunity to create her own phoney image in media, in an attempt to change her destiny.
