A young man changes the course of world and most of our behavior, and we don’t know him.
Who is Edward Snowden? What kind of hero or non-hero is he? All alone on stage as we are in front of our computers or smartphones, an actor starts a search for the famous whistleblower – and the image we have of him: the young American, the CIA spy in disguise, the sad knight that fails with his attempts of protection, the deep sea diver who disappears, even his girlfriend, the ex pole-dancer.
In revealing classified papers of western secret services and their methods, Snowden has divided the world: European citizens have praised him as a symbol of emancipation, the US is chasing him, and Russia has granted him political asylum.
