An audacious concept lies at the heart of the new drama by acclaimed German filmmaker Christian Petzold (Barbara, Phoenix).

Transposed from a 1942 novella to a modern day setting, it finds a group of migrants and refugees borderless, awaiting visas and in hope of a new beginning. Georg has taken on the identity of a dead writer and with his new documents plans to start a life in Mexico.

Everything changes when he meets Maria, the writer’s wife and falls in love with her.
