Etienne (Kad Merad, 'Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis, Les Choristes') has not always had much success in his acting career. Having been out of work often and being well past his prime now, he agrees to run a theater workshop in a prison, to make ends meet. There, he brings together an unlikely troupe of prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s famous play 'Waiting for Godot'. Impressed by the acting skills of the convicts, he pleads a case with the prison administration, convincing them to allow the newborn actors a tour outside of prison. Finally, Etienne has the chance to thrive. Each tour date 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? It is hard not to be moved by this endearing tale, that is based on a true story, and was the audience’s favourite at Angoulême Film Festival earlier this year.
