2020, 106 min


Étienne, a soft-hearted man who loves the acting craft, secures a job to organize a theatre workshop in a prison. There, he is surprised to discover the talent that emerges from his motley crew of inmates - why couldn't they perform on stage as well? Reviving the immortal play Waiting for Godot, this feel-good drama about application, determination, and faith in others and in oneself also offers a glimpse of the darker side of the human psyche.
