Etienne, an often out of work but endearing actor, runs a theater 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 colorful band of convicts on a tour outside of prison, Etienne finally has the chance to thrive.

Each 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?

An uplifting comedy inspired by true events, starring Kad Merad (Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis, César Award Winner for Don’t Worry, I’m Fine).
Executive produced by Dany Boon.
Written and directed by the writer of Welcome, and French box-office sensation In The Name of the Land.
