March 1, 2020

In a detention camp in 1918, a group of Finnish actors are sentenced to death. When an important German general arrives, the camp's vicious commandant forges out a cruel plan: the prisoners must perform a comedy - and if they can make the visiting general laugh, they will be spared. A story about zest for life and power of laughter. Based on true events.
