DaazoFilms Europe
Oct 5, 2011

The story is an opera-short-film, a modern take on the story of Saint Joan of Arc. The characters are actors who play victims in staged accidents. In this group of dummies, frail and skinny Johanna is the only one who works with obsession. Her kindness is impossible, and it provokes the others to call her St. Joan. The episode, which is the first scene of an opera triptych, tells the story of bitter and hopeless everyday tragedies, and ends with a surprising twist.
