It’s 1971 and young Lewis, straight out of university, takes up a job offer to direct a play for a group of inmates in a metal institution. The most eager and sardonic of this wayward trope is Roy, who cajoles the disparate group into performing Mozart’s opera Cosi Fan Tutte. To his despair and our amusement, Roy’s fellow performers can’t sing opera or speak Italian, let alone act. The mayhem that ensues as Roy’s vision transforms is driven by the strength and appeal of these wonderful characters.
