The Big Hit
Etienne, a sometimes unemployed but amiable actor, leads a theatre workshop in a jail, where he assembles an odd cast of inmates to recreate Samuel Beckett’s classic masterpiece Waiting for Godot. Etienne finally has a chance to grow when he is allowed to take the criminals on a tour outside of jail. Each date is a fresh success, and a distinct relationship develops between this impromptu cast of performers and their director. The final performance in Paris is approaching quickly.
