Do you ever think about having dinner in jail with prisoners? In Colombia, it's possible. Since December 15, in Cartagena in the north of the country, "El restaurante Interno" receives customers every night from Tuesday until Sunday.

Its a unique experience, which takes place inside a San Diego jail for women. Even the waitress and cooks are prisoners. This project aims to help them to build another life after release.Najet Benrabaa has the details.
