Am ambitious young theatre director takes some serious liberties with theology and accepted history as she stages a new play behind bars in this offbeat comedy from writer and director Davide Ferrario. Irena (Kasia Smutniak) is a forward thinking director who travels to a penitentiary in Turin to stage a new play at the invitation of chaplain Father Iridio (Gianluca Gobbi). Irena has been told she will have complete creative control over the production, but she discovers as long as she's using inmates as cast and crew, she has to heal with Iridio and warden Libero (Fabio Troiano), who have some fairly strong ideas of their own.
