Storyline

A young poet, Paul Susser, meets his master, the great author Samuel Beckett, in a small cafe. The two men initiate a complex friendship that spans the last two decades of Beckett's life and forever changes Paul's future. After Beckett's death, Paul meets Lucia an actress who wants to play Krapp, Beckett's most autobiographical male character. By opening himself up to this woman he will finally come to terms with Backett's legacy. This feature length fiction allows for a surprisingly fresh and intimate journey which follows the crisscrossed destinies of two creators attempting to 'say the unsayable'. A study in humanity, poetry and the creative process. Written by Anonymous
