    • Synopsis
    • A young poet, Paul Susser, meets his master, the great author Samuel Beckett, in a small café. The two men initiate a complex friendship that spans the last two decades of Beckett’s life and forever changes Paul's future. Later in life, he meets Christine Thomas, an actress who wants to play, Krapp, one of Beckett's latest male characters. By opening himself up to this woman will he become to truly grasp Beckett's elusive character.
      This feature length fiction allows for the first time ever a glimpse into the Nobel Prize winner’s work and life. It is a surprisingly fresh and intimate portrait which follows the crisscrossed destinies of two creators attempting to “say the unsayable”.
      A study in humanity, poetry, and the process of creation.
