Hoorspel & PodcastRealized


A crime.

A conviction.

And then: the never-ending, suffocating wait.

Sporadic contact with acquaintances outside the prison walls.

Only ten minutes on the phone and one visiting hour a week.

Emailing, skyping, face-timing, and texting are not allowed.

What is allowed is writing letters.

With a pen, paper, envelope, and stamps.

As many as you like…


This is: Luchten.

A series of letter exchanges between an inmate and someone outside of prison.

8 Episodes of 25 minutes

8 Correspondence duos
