As fascism spreads, German refugee Georg (Franz Rogowski) flees to
Marseille and assumes the identity of the dead writer whose transit papers
he is carrying. Living among refugees from around the world, Georg falls
for Marie (Paula Beer), a mysterious woman searching for her husband--the
man whose identity he has stolen. Adapted from Anna Segher’s 1942 novel,
TRANSIT transposes the original story to the present, blurring periods to
create a timeless exploration of the plight of displaced people.
