Synopsis

Imprisoned in a political camp, a group of refugees put on a production of Into the Woods. As war rages around them, the refugees find comfort and strength in the symbolic weight embedded in the beloved tales of Cinderella, Jack the Giant Killer, Little Red Ridinghood, and all the rest. However, as the war draws closer, and the character’s journeys through the woods remind them of their own confined lives, the musical leads them to question the power of wishing and the necessity of action in taking control of one’s world.
