This comedy contrasts two men, Henrique and Jean de Dieu, appearing in a producton of Strindberg's The Inferno. Offstage Henrique is a seaman with an adventurous life, and de Dieu is the play's director. This idiosyncratic film serves up an eccentric entree of philosophical concepts with some comedic entremets. The "J.W." of the film's title is John Wayne, a reference to Henrique's fascination with Wayne's swagger.
