A former actor is fascinated by an idea. He meets a scientist, a speech therapist, and a juggler and convinces them to stage “Endgame” by Samuel Beckett. They believe that Beckett’s play about four people trapped in a world that is about to collapse describes the situation they find themselves in. Protagonists’ everyday life intervenes with poetic shots made by one of them and quotes from Beckett’s Endgame in the film about life as theatre and theatre as life.
