Inhalt

Christian Petzold's adaptation of the eponymous novel by Anna Seghers, which originally was set in 1942, takes place today. After young German Georg narrowly escapes his arrest in Paris, he flees to Southern France. On the way, he assumes the identity of a deceased writer named Weidel. In Marseille, he eventually meets Weidel's wife Marie, who is unaware of her husband's death. The couple had planned to migrate to South America in order to start over. Marie still holds on to that plan, also as she and Georg begin a passionate affair. At the same time, the political situation in Marseille becomes increasingly tense. Soon, Georg has to decide whether he wants to take the place of Marie's husband and leave Europe together with her.
