As fascist troops descend on Paris, German refugee Georg (Franz Rogowski) flees to Marseille, where he assumes the identity of a dead writer and obtains a transit visa for passage to North America. Awaiting his escape in a make-shift emigré community, Georg's life intertwines with those of a young refugee and his widowed mother, and a lovely, mysterious woman in search of her own missing husband (Paula Beer), causing Georg to imagine new beginnings. Brilliantly adapted from Anna Seghers' 1944 novel by renowned filmmaker Christian Petzold (PHOENIX), TRANSIT shifts the story to an indeterminate present, blurring history with the contemporary to create an urgent and timeless exploration of the plight of displaced people around the world.
