synopsis
The contestants in this beauty pageant are thieves, murderers, and guerillas. The runnerup wipes her tears with a tattooed hand when the tiara is not placed on her head-and after the winner is crowned queen, all are taken back to their cells. Set in the women's penitentiary in Bogotá, Colombia, The Crown is a character-driven documentary that follows four inmates competing in the annual pageant.
