Convicts are drawing black and vertical lines on a giant wall. When night comes, jailors erase these lines, as prisoners have to do it again in the morning. One of them rebels himself, sidestracking from the verticality of the line. A woman denounces him to the jailors. After that, this same woman sneezes and sidetracks too. She is taken away, whereas she has been rewarded for her denunciation. An other woman can create a ladder, drawing horizontal lines, and escapes.
