Young theater director Irena (Kasia Smutniak) comes to a Turin prison with the blessing of inhouse priest Father Iridio (Gianluca Gobbi) to develop a performance piece with the convicts. Mistakenly believing she'll be allowed independence, she has to fight the disapproval of jail head Libero (Fabio Troiano) and then Father Iridio himself when the actor-wannabe priest forces her to tackle Jesus' Passion as her subject.The film's official website has a trailer, photo gallery, cast and credits and various other features, and the film's soundtrack is already available to buy. There's no news of if, and when this might be released outside of Italy (where it was released on the 10th April).
Irena hits a brick wall when none of the prisoners will play Judas. So she develops another idea: present the Jesus story but without a traitor, and without the sacrifice. Now Father Iridio and straightlaced nun Sister Bonaria (a delicious guest role for comedienne Luciana Littizzetto) try to block the performance, though Irena's new intimate relationship with Libero means she has a powerful ally.
Thanks to Peter for the tip off.
