The New York Shakespeare Festival had quite a success with this penetrating allegory about a totalitarian police state by a Polish dissident playwright and novelist. In a reform school for girls, near Warsaw. A documentary film director plans to do a film of their production of the classic "Cinderella". The authorities of the school welcome his arrival, as they believe his film will show the world how enlightened the state can be in its institutions of social welfare. The director plans to create a documentary whose theme is how innocent children are rescued from the web of society. When the girl playing Cinderella refuses to participate in this phony charade. both the director and the school authorities collaborate in her punishment.
