    • Synopsis
    • A director of avant-garde theatre.
      A prison warden.
      A chaplain who hopes to stage the Passion.
      Twenty inmates just waiting for time to pass...
      When Irena Mirkovic accepts to work with Don Iridio to stage a curious “Easter Passion” in a
      penitentiary, little does she realize that the experience will change her life. Not only because her
      encounter with prison warden Libero Tarsitano will encourage her to finally break off her
      relationship with her fiancé, the actor Cristiano, but because soon she will be grappling with a
      seemingly unsolvable problem.
      After winning the confidence of the inmates, Irena discovers that no one "inside" intends to play
      the part of Judas – for reasons that, in a prison, should be quite obvious to all. Despite her
      insistence, the "boys" do not budge. In addition, there are others in the prison trying to block the
      show: one of them is Sister Bonaria, an inflexible nun with a nevertheless very practical mind.
      The situation is unblocked when Irena has a brilliant idea: if they cannot find a Judas, why not
      imagine a different story of Jesus? A story that has nothing to do with betrayal, sentencing, death?
      A story with a happy ending? The inmates, though not totally grasping the philosophical
      implications of the idea, like it – as long as it is against going to prison...
