Faced with a lack of job offers, Antonio, a passionate but often unemployed actor, takes a job as a teacher for a drama class in a penitentiary. Doubtful at first, he finds talent among the unlikely company of inmates, and this ignites again his passion and desire for theater. Antonio manages to convince the prison warden to cross the prison walls and to stage “Waiting for Godot”, the celebrated comedy by Samuel Beckett, in a real theater. As days go by, the inmates surrender to Antonio’s resolution and let themselves go, discovering the liberating power of art and its ability to give purpose and hope beyond waiting. So, when the final green light comes, a triumphant tour begins.
