Etienne, an out-of-work but endearing actor, runs a theatre workshop in a prison, where he leads the prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s play, Waiting for Godot. When he is allowed to take them on a tour outside of prison, Etienne finally has the chance to thrive.

Each date is a new success, and it soon comes the final performance in Paris. Will their last night together be the biggest hit of them all?

An uplifting comedy inspired by true events, The Big Hit, won the Best European Comedy award of 33rd European Film Award.
