In adjacent male and female prisons, inmates communicate by “pecking” messages by hand. New prisoner Julian forges an alliance with the hot-tempered Manaury and learns to become a “woodpecker.” Complications arise when Yanelly, Manaury’s girlfriend, becomes more interested in communicating with Julian.
