Étienne, an often out-of-work but endearing actor, runs a theatre workshop in a prison, where he brings together an unlikely troupe of prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s famous play WAITING FOR GODOT. When he is allowed to take the colourful band of convicts on a tour outside of prison, Étienne finally has the chance to thrive. Each performance is a new success, and a unique relationship grows between this ad-hoc group of actors and their director. But soon comes the final performance in Paris. Will their last night together be the biggest hit of them all?
