Some chose to stop midway because they needed money and decided to work with other prisoners. The process is full of ups and downs, starting with the sensitive and emotional personalities of each prisoner, to the strong motivation that encourages them to complete the program.
What Etienne does in coaching and making them successful, does not escape his desire to make his daughter proud of him. Although his family problems are not explained in detail, so that the audience has a little doubt about the family conflict he is facing, he is certainly no longer with his wife.

Etienne tried to convince the manager by providing a video of their previous performance to be allowed to leave. Too complicated and difficult to get permission for them, it’s because of their impolite behavior.
However, after going through a strict chain of permissions, they finally got permission and were allowed to do it one last time. This is because a license can only be issued once.
Of course, this is a great opportunity for the five inmates to show off their best form. Moreover, they will perform on a grand and famous stage, and the judges who are looking for the talent of theater actors are also present to watch the show.
Unfortunately, the audience must be reminded once again that they are all prisoners who want freedom. The performance, which should have gone smoothly, was ruined by the absence of the prisoners.
