Sprat in Boots. A theatre that turns ex-convicts into actors to help them reintegrate into society

Half of the actors of Free Debut Theatre and all of its audience members are former convicts. The theatre provides them with a chance to start their lives anew and choose creativity over a destructive lifestyle. Most theatre members, however, still have their inner demons to deal with. Dmitry is a heavy drinker whose bad habits have got him in trouble more than once and prevented him from getting a job. He is determined to make it to the premier of Sprat in Boots. After all, he plays the lead role. Meanwhile, Irakly is torn between his love of acting and his need to seek redemption in a monastery for a crime he committed many years ago.
