Literary genius Samuel Beckett lived a life of many parts: Parisian bon vivant, WWII Resistance fighter, Nobel Prize-winning playwright, philandering husband, recluse. But despite all the adulation that came his, way he was a man acutely aware of his own failings. In 1969, having been awarded with the Nobel Prize for Literature, an embarrassed Beckett simply wanted to be rid of it and its prize money. This film revolves around this turning point, the internal debate raging within Beckett as to which of the people in his life most deserve to be the beneficiaries of his shame, overcoming the guilt about his selfishness and the pain caused to those he loved.
