Brief synopsis

This is the story of Francis, how he arrives in Berlin, how he enters this city thrice, how he stumbles, trips and falls, how Berlin becomes his undoing and how he finally resurrects as a better person.

As Francis, 30, the only survivor of an illegal crossing from Africa, awakes at a beach in Southern Europe, he swears an oath to God: From now on he wants to be a new, a better, a decent man. Soon after Francis finds himself in Berlin, where he realizes how hard it is to be righteous when you are an illegal refugee in Germany – without papers, without nation and without a work permit. When he receives an enticing offer from the charismatic German Reinhold, 31, to earn easy money, Francis initially resists the temptation, maintains his oath and stays away from Reinhold‘s shady dealings. But eventually he is sucked into Berlin's underworld and his life spirals out of control.
